In case you missed it... Conan gives $50K to Mayor Booker's non-profit

We missed this one late last week, but worth a look... we told you about the YouTube feud between Newark Mayor Cory Booker and Conan O'Brien on the Tonight Show... and now, like all good online feuds, a face-to-face meeting settled the score on live television. And Conan handed a Newark nonprofit that Booker founded in 2003 called Newark Now a $50,000 check to make up for the disparaging remarks he'd made about the city.

"It was one joke, but man was it expensive," Conan quipped on the show.
