Today the NYT Week in Review section has various grizzled veterans recounting briefly what the first year of other presidencies was like. Full assemblage here; my recollections of Jimmy Carter's surprisingly sunny first year here.
Today's Fox News Sunday, with Chris Wallace, apparently had a "Power Player of the Week" feature about a George Washington University sophomore named Daniel Lippman. He is known to me over the past two years or so (ie, since he was 17) for a steady stream of emails with links to interesting stories about China, aviation, presidential rhetoric, boiled frogs, or other
obsessions topics of interest to me. "Apparently" because I didn't see it and don't yet see a link to that segment on line, but I was interviewed about Lippman's industriousness and generosity. He has fed similar info to a very large number of journalists. And if past experience is any guide, the person most likely to come up with the right link will be Daniel Lippman! (Earlier On The Media segment about Lippman here.) (Update: Fox News link is here.) Both of these items for the record and as appreciations, in different ways, of J. Carter and D. Lippman.
