A photo of Truman Capote’s original manuscript shows the heroine’s original name as “Connie Gustafson.” It is crossed out and the name Holly Golightly is handwritten in. The manuscript  – and its tantalizing piece of history — is up for auction.

Stephen Colbert Salutes the People of Boston
Comedian Stephen Colbert reminded us Tuesday night that sometimes laughter is the best medicine. He gave a salute to the people of Boston and that resilient American city. “Nothing these terrorists do is going to shake them. … They went through the big dig, backing up traffic for 16 years. There are commuters just getting home now. … These maniacs may have tried to make life bad for the people of Boston but all they can ever do is show just how good these people are,” he said on his Comedy Central show, “The Colbert Report.”
