Princeton Honors Colbert for 'Understandable Vanity'
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. A great award has been bestowed upon a great patriot. Near where George Washington defeated the British in the Battle of Princeton, the university awarded The Great Princeton Class of 2008 Understandable Vanity Award to Stephen Colbert. In accepting the honor, the faux conservative Comedy Central host told graduates while they may want to change the world, please, don't do that, okay? Some of us like the way things are going now. It's MORNING EDITION.
