The Legacy of Barry Bonds

Yesterday I took care of my friend's kids while she was at class.

Getting a White House Day Pass

Jeff Gannon, a/k/a "The Presstitute", got a day pass into the White House Press Briefing daily for two years. So it must be pretty easy, no?

The FishbowlDC blog has been trying to get in on a daily pass for three days now, with no success.

Surprised? I didn't think so.
