Obama Spends Fathers Day In Palm Springs Dodging The Tough Decisions

June 15, 2014

It’s perhaps appropriate that President Barack Obama is vacationing this weekend in California, where the state flag features a roaming grizzly.The restless president, who has compared himself to a caged animal on recent wanderings by declaring the “bear is loose,” took a long Father’s Day weekend away with his wife and older daughter. The visit to the desert resort area of Palm Springs is one of the ways Obama has been trying to escape during his sixth year cloistered in the White House.In California, Obama has worked out mornings at a gym near the Rancho Mirage home where the first family is staying with White House decorator Michael Smith and his partner, James Costos, the American ambassador to Spain.Obama seemed determined not to let the crisis overseas keep him from getting away, in a time-honored tradition of presidents going on working vacations even as some question the optics. Obama spends Fathers Day in Palm Springs with White House Decorator, dodging the tough decisions.




Ask The Eye Parenthood Pack It Play It Or Toss It

August 25, 2013

Dear Eye View,
My elderly parents have moved down south, my father is in declining health, and I offered to help get their house in New England ready to sell. My mom is a bit of a pack rat, so I wasn’t surprised to find valuable items like wedding photos mixed in with junk. What I wasn’t prepared for was stumbling across, hidden in a drawer in her office, her personal sex toy. If I pack up this particular drawer full of stuff, my mother will know I found it. If I don’t pack it, maybe she’ll forget about it or think that it got thrown away with the other junk. So what should I do? Pack it up and play dumb, or toss it?


Dear Confused

I understand your concern. Pack it up, if a question comes up, tell her you packed her electrical ear cleaner. Hope this helps.
