Got any more of that yogurt?

Our girl finishes a meal.

Laughter and applause

Good times at the end of a Bush speech in Philadelphia on Monday:

THE PRESIDENT: I have some extra time, I thought I might answer some questions. (Laughter.) Yes, ma'am.

Q Since the inception of the Iraqi war, I'd like to know the approximate total of Iraqis who have been killed. And by Iraqis I include civilians, military, police, insurgents, translators.

THE PRESIDENT: How many Iraqi citizens have died in this war? I would say 30,000, more or less, have died as a result of the initial incursion and the ongoing violence against Iraqis. We've lost about 2,140 of our own troops in Iraq.

Yes.

Q Mr. President, thank you -- (unintelligible)

THE PRESIDENT: I'll repeat the question. If I don't like it, I'll make it up. (Laughter and applause.)

Jokes, (32,000+ dead), jokes, laughter, applause.

Little person, large box

MJ's been under the weather this week, but that doesn't mean she can't have fun with a bunch of cardboard.

Got any ketchup?

MJ enjoys her first french fry, purchased at the Air & Space Museum on Thanksgiving Day. At least, we think she enjoyed it.
