As for Kidlet? I don't think she's been exposed yet, but my childhood dolls (and a couple of Nana's) have been secured in an undisclosed location...

I am loth to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stre[t]ching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearthstone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
The man could write.

"I could not be standing here today, without the three people standing here on this stage. It's literally true, I wouldn't be here without my mother... [acknowledgement of Chelsea] ...And finally to my husband, who understands too well the awesome responsibilities resting on the shoulders of President Obama....I am so grateful to him for a lifetime of all kinds of experiences."
He's not going to be
able allowed to forget any time soon, is he?

"Hear ye! Hear ye!
On Gobbler’s Knob this glorious Groundhog Day,
February 2nd, 2009,
Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers,
Prognosticator of all Prognosticators,
Awoke to the call of President Bill Cooper
And greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths.
After casting a joyful eye towards thousands of his faithful followers,
Phil proclaimed that his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers were World Champions one more time...
And a bright sky above me
Showed my shadow beside me,
So 6 more weeks of winter it will be."
What - there was a game, too?
