The Pardu
Watchful eyes and ears feed the brain, thus nourishing the brain cells.

An Image for the ages

This handout photo provided by the White House shows President Barack Obama, accompanied by first lady Michelle Obama, during a phone call from the Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012, immediately after his State of the Union Address, informing John Buchanan that his daughter Jessica was rescued by U.S. Special Operations Forces in Somalia.

Johnathan Capeheart is reporting on the complex and multi-faceted  job of the presidency.   The Commander-in-Chief delivered a rousing SOTU Speech all  the while harboring news of the successful release of two hostages held in Somalia. He also delivered the speech with full knowledge that his repsponsibilities include a call to the family of the American hostage; a call to be accomplished within minutes of leaving the House Chamber.

Mrs. Obama seems as involved in the phone call as her husband.

The First Family!
