On the Lighter Side – Colbert Report Segment Discusses Library Crime and Municipal Boundaries


On Monday night, the Colbert Report ran a segment entitled “Nailed ‘Em – Library Crime.” The segment, available below, is about a young boy whose Nazareth Public Library card was confiscated when a newspaper article revealed that he was a resident of Tatamy Borough, which apparently doesn’t pay a per capita tax that would permit its residents to use the Nazareth library.

At “minute 3” of the clip, Colbert shows a visual of Northampton County that highlights the overlapping and often confusing boundaries of school districts, municipalities, and mailing addresses in the Lehigh Valley, and PA generally.
