Ms. Knope Goes to Washington
If you haven't heard, Amy Poehler and the rest of the "Parks and Recreation" shot scenes in Washington, D.C. last week (her character, Leslie Knope, was elected to the city council in Pawnee, Ind. but her boyfriend moved to D.C.) Now the New York Times has a full report, kicked off with a shot of Amy with John McCain, who has a cameo, along with Barbara Boxer and Olympia Snowe. McCain "made straight for Ms. Poehler. His first words to her: 'Do you remember when we shared a shower together?'" Note: This was on the night he guested on SNL. Missing was Ron Swanson, who is probably out campaigning for Ron Paul somewhere.
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
