From Tom Shales in the Washington Post:
Bush still has problems maintaining poise. Twice, when cheers from the crowd were interrupted by jeers from a protester -- each of whom was quickly hustled out of the hall by security guards and police -- Bush looked flustered, even frightened, though he did keep reading from the prompting devices encircling him. Ronald Reagan in the same situation would have responded with a quip and dismissed the protesters with a tolerant smile. Bush clung carefully to his text, his eyes darting anxiously around the hall.
My irregular, this summer, postings will intensify in irregularity for the next few weeks.

First Lady & TIME take a stress break.
As an ex-smoker, have you been able to keep your girls from becoming smokers?
I'm not so sure about that.
Are you still tempted?
Sure, of course. It's very difficult to quit.
Any particular times?
And especially if you're under a lot of stress. I'm not saying that I am.
