Happy Birthday, Helen Thomas

Everyone is wishing President Obama a happy birthday today, but I found out through this foodie blog that it happens to be Newswoman Helen Thomas' birthday, too.

This reminded me of Ms. Thomas' excellent chiding of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs in early July.

Today, Obama brought Ms. Thomas some cupcakes, figuring, I guess, that if beer works on cops and college professors, then sweets work for reporters.
