The opening skit of last night's Saturday Night Live was a takeoff on a C-SPAN Senate Foreign Relations Hearing broadcast. The show managed to capture that C-SPAN "ambience" perfectly.

More importantly, do you see that guy sitting directly behind the comedian playing General Petraeus--on the right-hand side of the screen? That's my talented brother-in-law Bobby Allen. Not only did he accumulate tons of face time on NBC, they even gave him a line to speak. True, it's no "These pretzels are making me thirsty!" but he did a damn fine job nonetheless.

We're proud of you, Bobby!

What's funny for me was that I was looking at him and thinking... "wtf that looks like Joe Piscopo... WHO IS THAT?"

Now I see, for one thing his eyes are closer together than Joe Piscopo's... but ... there's my answer.

Joe P below for comparison...

Thanks for the comment last week about my posting on the Amargosa Opera House. Your note made me realize again what a privilege it was to not only meet Ms. Becket, but to photograph her. As well, I thoroughly enjoyed your postings and considerable research on a place that has certainly become an icon of the West. I hope she lives forever.
