What did you do after President Obama's State of the Union address last night? I'm sure a lot of people continued to watch the pundits on the cable news channels dissect the speech. Probably even more people changed the channel to more conventional entertainment. Personally, I wrote a blog post about it.
And the president? He made a call to Jessica Buchanan's father, to tell him that his daughter had just been rescued by Navy commandos in Somalia, after being held hostage by pirates for three months. Now we know why the president told Defense Secretary Leon Panetta "good job" on his way to delivering his message to Congress. Not a word about this daring rescue in the speech.
