Today when I went out for lunch at my usual spot in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, I ended up next to a large group of eight graders from Massachusetts who had a Q&A with Jon Favreau, Obama’s director of speechwriting. I probably looked more interested than some of the students since one of their staff members came up to me and told me what I was listening to and where they were from. A real Washington lunch! Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera with me so no photo this time, but here is an article about Mr. Favreau from the NY Times. I also forgot to ask if he wrote Obama’s speech at the White House Correspondence Dinner this year!
