SNL poked fun at its lack of diversity during Kerry Washington's hosting gig; also most diverse SNL in a while: http://www.hulu.com/watch/553590
Kerry Washington plays a multitude of Black women who visit President Barack Obama in the Oval Office, ranging from First Lady Michelle to Oprah and Beyonce.

My piece on why Saturday Night Live needs a black female castmember graced @NPR's home page. Check it here: http://www.npr.org/blogs/codeswitch/2013/11/02/242566554/heres-the-funny-thing-about-black-women-on-snl
Why should Saturday Night Live care that there are no black women in its cast of comedians?

MSM no longer controls it's own fate. The under-30 market is gone. They're broke also. Maybe it's time to lose the stupid pompousness.

Sat at my desk in the newsroom with coffee, turned on TV to see second plane slam into WTC. Didn't get up for four hours. #wherewereyou?
