Tonight, PBS is broadcasting his pre-recorded Mark Twain Prize ceremony. I would normally be watching it, except that's why God created the DVR. Because the Cubs are back home at Wrigley Field for the first World Series game there in 71 years -- and, live, Bill Murray is scheduled to be the "guest conductor" for the 7th inning stretch, singing "Take Me Out to Ballgame." So, even he won't be at home watching himself at the Kennedy Center.
