"Then came what is now remembered as the Macaroon Security Standoff. At 6:30, with the Seder about to start, Neil Cohen, the husband of Michelle Obama’s friend and adviser Susan Sher, was stuck at the gate bearing flourless cookies he had brought from Chicago. They were kosher for Passover, but not kosher with the Secret Service, which does not allow food into the building."
Today Walt and I were in line for scones when we saw a man stop at an corner across the street. One cat approached him, and the man took out some food for it. Another cat came out and ate as well.
The woman behind us in line explained that the cats were strays who usually hung out by that intersection. The man came to feed them regularly; he was the only person the cats would approach. Even though they were strays, they didn’t look scraggly because of this guy.
