  1. You always have your eye out for such interesting things! I look forward to the unveiling.

  2. Curiously a savvy commenter on Huffingtonpost divined this possibility back in August ... read the comments of this blog posting ...

  3. Great news. Doonan is hilarious. (Though I can see why your first commenter might be nervous . . . !)

  4. I think Mr. Doonan will do a splendid job. There is always some room for creativity, especially in a house as stayed as the White House!
