Yesterday I went to the American History Museum – which just re-opened after nearly three years of construction, to say hello to Helen Thomas and Craig Crawford. The two co-authors of “Listen Up, Mr. President” have been on a joint book touring for the past few months. (See my Flickr photos of the event and Craig Crawford’s Twitter feed here).
I talked to Helen for a few minutes and it was clear her mind was on the White House news that morning. Just hours before, two former Presidents, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, made a joint appearance to help the devastated people of Haiti and announced the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund. Here is the PSA on WhiteHouse.gov.
