Last night Saturday Night Live gifted us with a glorious performance by David Byrne and his American Utopia band. "Once In A Lifetime" is one of my all-time favorite Talking Heads songs, and this man has lost absolutely nothing in the vocals department, nor in the mesmerizing weirdo department. I mean, John Mulaney's opening monologue was great as always, but this performance? This was nostalgia heaven mixed with a dose of timeless hope.

Everything old is new again. Same as it ever was.

Here are the Sunday show guests, according to Politico:

-- NBC’s “Meet the Press”: Vice President Mike Pence … Joe Biden … Pete Buttigieg … Dr. Joseph Fair … new NBC News / Marist polls from North Carolina and Texas. Panel: Robert Gibbs, Eddie Glaude, Jr., Peggy Noonan and Kristen Welker.
