The small town of Canton, Kansas isn't laughing after being put in the national spotlight on Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" Wednesday night.
Host Stephen Colbert made several off-color remarks about Canton, including "If Dorothy was from Canton, Kansas, she would have wished the house dropped on her."
A note to Stephen Colbert from Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius
My dearest Stephen:
Canton, Kansas is a town of about 800, located in McPherson County. Since you just missed the McPherson County Fair, where we surely could have gotten you bucked off something, and the yearly demolition derby is over, we'd like to invite you to visit the pioneer 1883 jail on Allen Street in Canton. Standard procedure is to view by appointment only, but in your case, the Mayor has assured me, we can get you an overnight booking anytime you are available.
