The contestant on this week's always funny, informative and entertaining "Not My Job" segment of the NPR show Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!, hosted by Peter Sagal, is not your usual guest on a humorous quiz show, CBS correspondent Leslie Staahl.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
Elisberg is a two-time recipient of the Lucille Ball Award for comedy screenwriting. He's written for film, TV, the stage, and two best-selling novels, is a regular columnist for the Writers Guild of America and was for the Huffington Post. Among his other writing, he has a long-time column on technology (which he sometimes understands), and co-wrote a book on world travel. As a lyricist, he is a member of ASCAP, and has contributed to numerous publications.
