Miller v. Miller on Yasser Arafat: Roper or Ringo?

Here’s a fun line from a New York Times profile on peace processor Aaron David Miller:

When he first met Arafat, he says, he was struck by how much he looked like Ringo Starr in Arab headdress.

It made me chuckle, but not as much as when I heard another Miller – Dennis – describe the late PLO leader as Mr. Roper with a hangover. (I’d say Ringo is probably the better match, but Dennis still gets the nod for creativity.)
