Michelle Obama skips town
By Anne E. Kornblut
President Obama may be working late, but First Lady Michelle Obama is apparently getting a break - on an unannounced trip to California this week, her office said.
The First Lady's trip is on "private travel the rest of the week with her kids," spokeswoman Katie McCormick-Lelyveld said on Tuesday. She declined to offer further details of how long Mrs. Obama and the girls will be away, or where, exactly, in California they have gone.
It is not unheard of for First Ladies to skip town unnoticed. Laura Bush occasionally headed to New York to go to the theater, shopping or to see her daughters in college, without making the trips public.
But Michelle Obama's absence raised a critical question: Who is tending to the garden?
