Subject: Pool Report #3

The White House has updated the list of the President's golfing partners - Michael Brush is part of today's Journey To Joint Base Andrews.

Your pooler would like to note that it's Charlie Chaplin's birthday. Also Kingsley Amis's birthday. The mass shooting at Virginia Tech was nine years ago. On this day in 1947, Bernard Baruch coined "Cold War," while 30 years later Starsky & Hutch's David Soul had the #1 pop hit "Don't Give Up On Us Baby." Seven years ago, Pres Obama and VP Biden were making the case for high-speed rail in America. And Pres Obama visited Mexico for the first time since taking office, promising "a new era of cooperation and partnership between our two nations, an era built on an even firmer foundation of mutual responsibility and mutual respect and mutual interest." And on April 16, 1943, Albert Hoffman "accidentally" consumed LSD and gave us the first report of its effects.

Look, your pooler had some time on his hands, ok?
