President Obama made a stop in to one of our middle schools today here in Madison Wisconsin. My husband, son and I happened to be on our way to the HyVee store when it struck us. The highway was laced with police cruisers at every ramp and a high pitch siren went off (the kind they use to warn about tornadoes.). It wasn’t a test or drill day, so I assume it was code for the Eagle has landed. Several black hawk helicopters were making the rounds above us, but other than that they did a fairly good job sneaking him in. I made a comment on my cell to a daughter about it all and noticed a blip on my screen. It made wonder if I hadn’t been tagged for the mention. We live in a terrified world these days. My daughter asked me why he was there and I thought maybe it just gets scary in that big old White House maybe he just needs to settle back with us little folks now and then.
