  • File this under “I’m Sorry”: If White House 2012 is anything, it is honest, and it is that honesty which allows me to share this reader comment from Lou who writes;

“Love your site, but I’m finding the “typos” and missspelllings¬†disconcerting. For no charge, I’ll review your copy before you post it. Isn’t it worth five minutes more to get it out “clean and sober”? I’m serious, guys. I’ll do it for no charge, in the interest of getting the message out without the annoying distractions. I hope to here from youse.”

-Lou F.

Lou is right and while I can try to offer excuses, any such attempts would be just that……excuses.¬† I myself have often found errors in the stories of others and thought to myself “how stupid”.¬† I recently read a piece from a prominent columnist who was writing about the flu season and wrote, “I hate how I always get dick”.¬† He meant “sick”.¬† That one slipped by (no pun intended….okay, maybe it is intended)¬†the columnists, the editors, and the proofreader.¬† And they all get paid handsomely for their work.¬† Here at White House 2012, no one gets paid.¬† Ours is a labor of love¬†and done out of passion for our beliefs.¬† However, finances or the lack thereof, are no excuse for sloppy work.¬† So to Lou and everyone else¬†out there, I offer my apologies for typos, and misspelled¬†words.¬† We may not be the New York Times but that is still not reason enough to not be¬†better than them,……….which shouldn’t be too hard to do.

  • White House 2012‚Ä≤s Cinema Politico: This week‚Äôs feature presentation is Atomic Cafe.

This 1982 flick¬†¬†provides a slight¬†release of comic energy. The film recounts a defining period of 20th century history and serves as a chilling and often hilarious reminder of cold-war era paranoia in the United States.¬† At least it’s considered paranoia now.

Click here to see the Movie. Registration with Hulu is required, but it is quick, easy, and free. Like White House 2012
