Check out my first article at PolicyMic. What Lorne Michaels and SNL need to do to diverse the cast but keep bringing the laughs.

Mayor Rudolph Guiliani: Having our city’s institutions up and running sends a message that New York City is open for business. “Saturday Night Live” is one of our great New York City institutions, and that’s why it’s important for you to do your show tonight. Lorne Michaels: Can we be funny? Mayor Rudolph Guiliani: Why start now? “Live, from New York! It’s Saturday Night!”

My favorite SNL sketch of all time for three reasons:

1. Billy Joel’s “Goodnight Saigon”

2. Tom Hanks on the sax

3. Will Ferrell being so awesome to share the stage with not only the whole cast but past hosts and musical guests. AMAZING!
