SNL takes dead aim at Sweet Home Alabama

As a life-long Alabamian, I’m used to this. From articles in The Onion to the too-close-for-comfort farces in the Borowitz Report, Alabama’s culture and public figures are common targets. What flies here doesn’t even wings elsewhere.

So it didn’t surprise me that Saturday Night Live took dead aim at my home state last week— twice. Once in the opening . . .

. . . and later during the news segment. As a native Alabamian, it didn’t shock me that somebody banned a movie because it had a gay character in it, or that SNL grabbed that up for a snide commentary. It shocked me that we still have drive-in theaters! Who knew?
