Inside this Book – A strange thing has been happening in the United States for nearly 300 years. For some reason, our presidents are younger than our senators. The average president of the United States takes office at age 55. In contrast, US senators start their terms in Congress—the most recent at the time of this writing—at an average of age 62. Members of the House of Representatives were 57. This is not a recent anomaly. Presidents have tended to be younger than Congress since the Founding Fathers died. And though a handful began the job as senior citizens, the average starting age has never crossed 60. These statistics are especially peculiar because of how much more difficult it is to become president than a senator. Terms in the Senate are commonly seen as a step on the path to president. But even brand-new senators, holding their first federal office ever, have been coming in at an average of 56 and 57 in recent years. Presidents get to the top before senators get in the door. Why? Armchair explanations like good looks don’t make sense. Why would we be more likely to vote for a handsome young president but not a good-looking young congressperson? Data in presidential versus congressional elections indicates that youth voter turnout isn’t the culprit.
Inside this book –Smartcuts PDF Book by Shane Snow – The kid was nervous. He stood on a small stage on Second Avenue, in the heart of the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Feet away from him sat Lorne Michaels, the gatekeeper to the world’s most prestigious comedy clique and creator of the most Emmy-nominated television show in history. With dark eyes and short, salt-and-pepper hair, the man sat in a wooden chair and waited, silent and scrutinizing, expressionless as he usually was at times like this. It was 1996, and this was The Comic Strip, the oldest stand-up comedy showcase club in New York City. The long-haired kid wore jeans and a pullover T-shirt, and held in his shaking hands a Troll doll, a plastic, pantsless toy with beady eyes and neon hair. It was a rare audition for NBC’s weekly sketch comedy series, Saturday Night Live. With The Comic Strip’s iconic brick wall to his back—where Eddie Murphy and a hundred other superstar comics had cast their shadows over the years—and with a cluster of veteran comedy producers to his front, the kid stood, feet rooted to the spot where he was about to spend the scariest three minutes of his life. Then the kid—Jimmy Fallon—took a breath, and began his routine. A BOUT NINE MONTHS EARLIER , Randi Siegel, a feisty, up-and-coming talent manager, was starting a new job. She’d gotten her feet wet in the comedy industry working with stars like David Spade and Adam Sandler, and had, by age 26, worked herself into the SNL in crowd. One day, a colleague named Peter Iselin, who’d recently moved to L.A. from Upstate New York, handed Siegel an audition tape. “There’s this kid,” he told her—one of his former interns from his last job. “He’s really great with impressions, and he wants to be on Saturday Night Live.” Get in line , Siegel thought. So does everyone else.
