    Just call it the Rally  to Keep Secrets Alive. Organizers for Saturday's Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert rallies have been keeping the schedule tightly guarded.

    Except for once, government transparency actually burns the Comedy Central stars. Oh snap, who saw that coming? The National Park Service made the event permit public, reports the Christian Science Monitor. Conveniently for the curious, that permit runs more than 60 pages.

    The day begins at 10 a.m. with videos and music on the Jumbotron, and The Roots will perform at noon. Stewart is set to take the stage at 1:05, with Colbert to follow at 1:20 p.m.

    The afternoon also includes performances by Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staple and Sheryl Crow, plus readings and the national anthem. At 2:40, the pre-taped Sanity and Fear Awards will air. You can see the complete schedule here.
