Re "First lady praised for style, warmth in China," Tribune, March 23:

How ironic that on this trip to China, the first lady discusses that free flow of information is crucial "because that’s how we discover truth, that’s how we learn what’s happening in our communities and our country and our world."

However, on this trip, she will not allow an open press conference. Rather, the coverage is just photo ops of the first family playing ping pong and sightseeing.

How wonderfully transparent the selfish egos are for the world to see.
