In their September 6 issue, Newsweek ran an interview/article with Kristin Gore (daughter of Al Gore and writer of "Leela's Homeworld" ). 

This Gore Is No Bore.

The occasion was the succes of Kristin's book "Sammy's Hill".
"Sammy's Hill" is a laugh-out-loud literary debut, certain to draw comparisons to "Bridget Jones's Diary." Samantha Joyce, its idealistic heroine, is a whiz at the office and a wreck everywhere else. She gets a neck rash when she meets a cute guy, seeks out telemarketers for romantic advice, can't Rollerblade worth a damn and obsesses over questions like how she'd get ready for work each morning if, say, a lion ripped off her right arm. ("People laughed, but I lived only a few short miles from the zoo." )

Futurama was mentioned briefly.

Raised in Washington, Gore graduated from Harvard, wrote for The Harvard Lampoon and honed her comedy chops as a TV writer for both Matt Groening's "Futurama" and "Saturday Night Live.

Just thought I'd bring it to PEEL, if anyone is interested.
