>Hi all,
>Since it doesn't seem like anyone else has mentioned it, I thought I'd let 
>you know that the Oils (or at least Peter) got a mention on the last 
>episode of "Saturday Night Live" (April 3). During the "Weekend Update" 
>skit, up popped a photo of Dennis Kozlowski, the former CEO of Tyco, who 
>was put on trial for allegedly ripping off millions of dollars from the 
>company. Kozlowski is bald as a pool ball. Explaining that a judge declared 
>a mistrial in the case last week, SNL cast member Jimmy Fallon said 
>Kozlowski will now go back to his other job as lead singer of Midnight Oil. 
>Jimmy then did a few Peter Garrett-style vocal contortions.
>It was nice to see a pop-cultural reference to the Oils in the U.S., even 
>if it did involve comparing Peter to an alleged corporate criminal!
