So Precious

The New York Times has a really great piece in their Op-Ed section today comprised of letters from children to the President-Elect, "Dear Sir Obama: Presidential Advice." It should make you smile. 

These kids have a variety of cute and profound things to say, but I really like the angle take by Chandler Brown, 12, from Chicago.

Dear President Obama,

Here is a list of the first 10 things you should do as president:

1. Fly to the White House in a helicopter.
2. Walk in.
3. Wipe feet. 
4. Walk to the Oval Office. 
5. Sit down in a chair. 
6. Put hand-sanitizer on hands. 
7. Enjoy moment. 
8. Get up.
9. Get in car. 
10. Go to the dog pound.
