SNL

A couple of people have asked what's the deal with me & Saturday Night Live?

Well, it seems there was (is?) a writer for SNL with my name.  That's fine.  I'm fond of my name, but willing to share under these circumstances.  It has led to a couple of confusing moments, however.  Such as with the OpEd editor of a large daily.  I sent him an essay for consideration.  He loved it!  Thought it was great!  Then asked if I was the guy from SNL.  I told him that no, I was a guy from Columbia, MO.  And I never heard from the editor again.  Ah well.
