In the wake of what happened in CT, I don’t think SNL could have picked a more powerful and appropriate cold open to their show last night. I’ll admit, I totally teared up.
Towards of the end of the show, SNL presented a skit entitled “Holiday Pageant” in which host Martin Short and musical guest Paul McCartney audition. Well I don’t want to spoil it, but if you find the skit boring, skip to the 3:50 mark. Normally I turn off that song when I hear it, but this time I kept it on. I was wrapping gifts so I was in the holiday mood. Plus the looks on these kids’ faces… you could tell it was the highlight of their year!
