    Fantastic column, Martha, one of your best!!!!!

    By the way, just so you know, the link for President Obama’s reception at the White House in honor of Women’s History Month doesn’t show Sana’s intro…I’ve been hunting for it on the ‘net with no luck. Just saw some pictures on THE BEAT. Do you know if there’s any video of it?
