This article appeared in The Washington Post? How can anyone take an SNL skit and turn it into comedic social responsibility? It’s humor. SNL isn’t in the business of politics any more than Monty Python was. If the political landscape makes for good satire, then it becomes content. Suggesting they’re going about it wrong and should be advocating protests, community involvement, etc., is wrong-headed. Why would a writer waste time on this argument (and why would The Washington Post publish it)?

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
