I love our President....Ya think Mittens would have done that for this kid?
For as long as there have been teachers, students have had excuses: my dog ate my homework, my computer crashed, I had food poisoning.

“If I was president I would say no more smoking, no more tobacco, and no more drugs,” said Sullivan.
But on Friday, Sullivan skipped school for the first time in his life, to meet President Barack Obama.
Obama was visiting the Honeywell facility in Golden Valley, Minn.
“First I said, ‘Hi, Mr. President.’ Then he says, ‘Hi Tyler, you must be out of school then,’” said Sullivan.
That’s when Obama reached for a pen and his presidential letterhead.
