You know, it must be hard to write for late night television. You've got to come up with fifteen or twenty topical jokes every night, and sometimes there just isn't anything remotely amusing in the news. Take this past weekend, for example. You can imagine the nation's comedy writers going diligently through the newspaper, looking for an item, a colorful incident, anything, really, that might lend itself to a witty one-liner or offbeat observation. Even when something seems vaguely promising, though, it isn't easy to find the right angle, or a sufficiently amusing take on the subject. Overall, a frustrating process. Better luck next week, perhaps.
