I'm working on the HPS Newsletter and was trying to find an image of the signing of GINA by President Bush. I found this one on the White House Web site, although the resolution is crappy and they don't make high res pics available, not even in the media section. I have to say, the Clinton administration had a much better online media room - but that's a story for another day.
I saved this pic, and then I had a wacky Friday thought. I looked around at all the piles of paper, all the things to do, sitting around on my desk at work. And then I looked at this picture - note how clean the President's desk is! There's nothing on it! It's spotless!!! Do you suppose some secretary comes by before the photographer shows up and clears it off for him? Or do you think it's always that spotless? I'd like to think that it's usually covered in work like my desk.
