Play of the Day: A Texas Secession Could Solve Our Ebola Problem

Stephen Colbert looks at the first case of the disease in the U.S.

Ebola traveled from West Africa to the United States aboard an international flight. So why doesn't America just close its borders? And while we're at, can't we also just grant Texas the freedom the state has always asked for?  

Plus: Former Secret Service Director Julia Pierson reportedly wanted the agency to function a little bit more "like Disney World." Comedian Jimmy Fallon's suggestion that she be replaced with Paul Blart seems more and more likely.
