Does Pasco have wizards? Find out tonight!



Stevenanimation_2Two weeks ago, producers from Comedy Central's Colbert Report descended upon Land O'Lakes to seek the "truthiness" of a Pasco substitute teacher's claim that he was fired for wizardry.

If you want to know what they found, watch the show tonight.

The show confirms that its "wizard piece" will run this evening (11:30 p.m. EST), along with a special performance by R.E.M.

You might see the sub, Jim Piculas, and you might see School Board chairwoman Kathryn Starkey, among others. But you won't be seeing any Gradebook reporters. The producers tell me my 30-minute interview hit the cutting room floor. Probably for the best.
