Holy cow, I wrote a book!
The White House is doing some renovating of its own (NYT, free registration required),
in order to refurbish a section of the lawn that is used
by television reporters so they can stand there with a
nice picture of the White House behind them.
But that's not why I found this story interesting.
Go about halfway down the article: "The light and heat
from the television lights, sometimes 14 hours a day,
were confusing the trees", causing them to sprout leaves
in winter and flower out of season.
Even the trees are falling for the media's lies.
