Asked in Friendship
How do you become friends with someone famous?
To become friends with someone you need to be able to meet them and talk to them socially. The problem with people who are famous is that they like (need) to maintain their privacy and therefore restrict who has access to them on a social basis. The most neutral approach would be to write to them and say you would like to meet them. However, the very nature of your question 'someone famous' indicates that you are not actually interested in the famous person on a personal basis (they could be anyone as long as they were famous) but simply for your own aggrandisement. You would be the sort of person a reasonably minded famous person would want to avoid socially.

Asked in Books and Literature, Civil Lawsuits
Do public figures who are satirized in comedy skits have a case for slander or libel?
No. Satire is a form of speech protected by the First Amendment. The Supreme Court decision on Hustler Magazine, Inc. v. Falwell, 485 US 46 (1988) was unanimous is saying that the First Amendment prohibits monetary awards to public figures to compensate for emotional distress. This is because satire is exaggerated so that reasonable people will recognize that is has no basis in fact.
