    After a government-funded breakfast, Pres Obama used gov't-run personnel and transportation to access gov't-funded research facility, collaborate with gov't salaried scientists to develop a comprehensive care plan toward an integrated, affordable health solution. Hey, a eureka moment!

  21. Jennifer, New York City

    The last presidential visitor said he didn't like cells. So I asked him why, and he said "Well, the only two kinds I know about are stem cells and sleeper cells, and neither of them is any good."
