Set your recorders. The artist Trevor Paglen will be on The Colbert Report Monday night to talk about his new book titled I Could Tell You But Then You Would Have to be Destroyed by Me: Emblems from the Pentagon's Black World. It's an exploration of the patches and emblems created by various "secret" organizations funded by the confidential $32 billion portion of the Defense Department's annual budget.
