2007-2008 season headliner, Bill Cosby was honored this evening at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock were on hand to salute one of their comedic mentors as well as Cosby Show cast mates Phylicia Rashad and Malcolm-Jamal Warner.
While Cosby deserves all of the recognition he receives for his lifetime achievement, I must admit, I was a little disappointed with his program in Sacramento. His book, Come On, People: On the Path from Victims to Victors had come out just day prior and Cosby refused to take any serious questions about the book or his stance on the African American community. A missed opportunity for all involved from my vantage point.
