News item:  President Obama sings again at a White House function.

Hey!  I am just a poor immigrant dormouse that got lucky -- found my way into
this luxury pad, all the way from Chicago, hidden in the Grand Ollama's
accoutrements -- that's what you call your junk when you are the big chief.  
So here I am in the nerve center of the universe, so to speak, within
whispering distance of "da Man" hisself.  And the food is nothing to
complain about either.  Yeah!  I miss the open air, but who's complaining,

the ma-in-law, and the missus is no longer her cool self.  I think, I'll get me a
pair of ear plugs too.
