And the children could, and should, lead them!

A couple days ago, The New York Times published some letters of advice to Barack Obama from a few of his youngest constituents. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Dear President/Mr. Obama,

The best thing about living in the White House would be running around like a maniac. The thing I would like least is the work.

— Holly Wong, age 9, San Francisco

I personally would love running the White House halls and behaving like a maniac...but on a more pragmatic note,

Dear President Obama,

Here is a list of the first 10 things you should do as president:

1. Fly to the White House in a helicopter.
2. Walk in.
3. Wipe feet.
4. Walk to the Oval Office.
5. Sit down in a chair.
6. Put hand-sanitizer on hands.
7. Enjoy moment.
8. Get up.
9. Get in car.
10. Go to the dog pound.

— Chandler Browne, age 12, Chicago

...this kid has his priorities absolutely in order. The First Dog ought to be the first order of business! Wasn't it Truman who said if want a friend in Washington, get a canine?!
