      • Stephen: Tonight: I profile the state of Delaware. You're in luck, fans of beige. And: The House passes a healthcare bill late Saturday night. I wonder if it covers the morning after pill. Plus I talk to Thomas Campbell, director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I will ignore his suggested donation request. Happy 40th birthday Sesame Street. That bird's not getting any bigger, I say we eat him now. This is the Colbert Report.

      • Stephen: Delaware was the first state to ratify the U.S. Constitution on December 7th, 1787 and state officials expect they'll have another accomplishment any day now. Delaware is the only state in the union with no national parks, sea shores, battlefields, historic sites or monuments. It's all explained in their official tourism guide: Keep Driving Till You Hit Maryland. Now, Delaware's most famous son is Vice President Joe Biden. As a Senator, Biden commuted daily from Wilmington to the Capitol by Amtrak. On the way to work he composed some of his most memorable speeches, and on the ride home he composed some of his most heartfelt apologies. Due to its favorable tax laws, Delaware is the legal home to two thirds of the Fortune 500 companies. In fact, 1209 North Orange Street, seen here in Wilmington, is the registered office of more than 200,000 different companies, leading to some particularly heated arguments over who's yogurt that is in the staff fridge.
