SNL Writers Meeting

They can lead with a homage to Franz Kafka: a reporter is told that if the name of a city is included in the article on why you can’t take your laptop on a plane, well, people will die as it reveals sources of intelligence. However it is perfectly OK if the President tells representatives of a foreign power what the name is, because it isn’t classified. When the reporter checks to see if the name of the city can now be mentioned, he is told, of course not, it would compromise sources.

Next a little skit showing how even someone who has been involved with the legal system for years can forget that law enforcement officers are taught to take notes of their interaction with the public to refresh their memory if called upon to testify.
