With Gabriel Sherman and Naquasia LeGrand, The Colbert Report goes a little off grid this week.  The full slate of guests is-

The Daily Show

* Monday 1/13: Roger Ross Williams
* Tuesday 1/14: Tim Gunn
* Wednesday 1/15: Robert Gates
* Thursday 1/16: Steven Brill

The Colbert Report

* Monday 1/13: David Fanning
* Tuesday 1/14: Deborah Solomon
* Wednesday 1/15: Gabriel Sherman
* Thursday 1/16: Naquasia LeGrand

Roger Ross Williams is pretty surely on to talk about his documentary God Loves Uganda which "explores connections between evangelicalism in North America and in Uganda, suggesting that the North American influence is the reason behind the controversial Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill that has been tabled before the Ugandan Parliament which included penalties of death for gays and lesbians."

David Fanning is not the Tory leader of the American Revolutionary War who captured the Governor of North Carolina in 1781 and 20 years later was convicted of rape in New Brunswick which is hardly surprising since that David Fanning died in 1825 some 48 years before "the discovery of the photoconductivity of the element selenium"

This David Fanning is the Executive Producer of Frontline "America’s longest-running investigative documentary series".  I'm not clear if Stephen will be focusing on any particular episode, but probably not.

As always I'm looking for volunteers to take a day or two.  I'm slowly exploring the Group feature of dK so we can avoid drop outs like last week's but I'm not ready to set anything up quite yet.  If you are interested in joining it's not to early to let me know though.  I'm thinking about calling it Sausage Grinder of Snark.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
