Some might not be aware, but CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King grew up in Turkey, and she recalled a funny, fictional story from her childhood there during an appearance last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
And it has to do with Martin Luther King Jr.
King: You guys will like this. There was a time when Martin Luther King Jr. was on the cover of Time magazine and, you know, I'm a little kid. I was, like, in fourth grade, and they said something about Martin Luther King, and i said, "Oh, my uncle Marty!" The teacher said, "Martin Luther King Jr. is your uncle?" And i said "Yes!" So when my parents came for the parent-teacher conference, my teacher said, "Oh my god, Mr. King, it's an honor to meet you. The work your brother is doing…" And my father is going: "Beauregard and Jerome?" My teacher then said, "No, Martin Luther King Jr." My parents just sat there in stunned silence. Of course, I got in trouble. That was my first introduction about it's not good to lie!"
King's CBS This Morning co-host John Dickerson came up in conversation. Colbert is also friends with Dickerson, referred to him as a "choir boy" because of his blue eyes and blond hair. "See you call him a 'choir boy,' Stephen, but John Dickerson is a little mischievous and likes to play," quipped King. Colbert disclosed that Dickerson "likes a cocktail," and King said she is aware that he and Colbert have had some "libations" together.
"He has been great, and I think he has been a really nice addition to us," said King.
King and Colbert also discussed the network's upcoming Royal Wedding coverage, featuring American Meghan Markle, and "grown ass man" Prince Harry (King's words), as well as King's new book Note to Self, which she said is based on a popular CBS This Morning segment.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
