Reporter's Note: President Barack Obama says Americans should help him with ideas to make our country a better place to live. I think more picnic tables would be a good start, but beyond that I am writing a letter a day to the White House.

Dear Mr. President,
I went to see my elder daughter in a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream tonight, and it was fabulous! I don’t know if you are into that kind of thing, but I think you would have enjoyed it, and now that I think about it I should have called you. Sorry about that. That’s one I owe you.
You are the father of daughters, and so am I. We worry about their education, their social world, and whether they have used up all the hot water. Which, btw, strikes me as very funny: you running through the White House living quarters in a towel yelling, “Malia! How long were you in that shower?”
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
