Someone just sent in this picture — which I share today to commemorate the blanket of snow Washington got today.
The pic reminded me of the Washington National Zoo where one can watch the ‘panda cam‘.
And it also reminded me that my friend John Berry, who has been serving director at the National Zoo, is the new director of the Office of Personnel Management for the Obama administration.
This is good news. Congrats to John.
I’m still wondering what these pandas are doing.
Back to the real world, I will be appearing on Keith Olbermann’s Countdown tonight at about 8:15 pm EST discussing with Keith the very surprising and refreshing decision by President Barack Obama to give his first formal television interview to a leading Arabic network, Al-Arabiya.
I have just spent about 45 minutes on Al-Arabiya discussing the Obama Al-Arabiya interview. Fascinating back story about how the White House moved this.
