Country Or College?
Sometimes art imitates life imitating art. Or something like that. On Thursday, NBC unveiled a new comedy called "Community" (at least they claim it's a comedy). The main character in the show has to go back to college because his state bar suspended his law license when they found out that his undergrad degree came from Colombia (the country) and not Columbia (the Ivy League University). Flash back to last November 9. During a Nightly News story about how statins could reduce the risk of heart attacks, we were shown a list of all the countries where the medical trials were taking place. And one of the countries they listed was "Columbia". Really. I mean it. You can't make this stuff up.
