What could Barack Obama do to help Massachusetts? He owns a 14-room, 6500 square foot house in Chicago (using fossil fuels to heat 6500 square feet for a family of four in one of the coldest parts of the U.S. is apparently a demonstration of one’s commitment to reversing global warming) that presumably sits vacant nearly all year. The house is guarded 24/7 by Secret Service agents. The street is closed to non-residents. Why can’t Aunt Zeituni live there? She wouldn’t be bothered by the rabble or the press. She wouldn’t be a drain on Massachusetts citizens.

Philip Greenspun’s Weblog » President Obama: Please take your Aunt Zeituni off our hands

Fantastic essay by Phil Greenspun. He even offers to pick her up at her public housing, drive her to the airport, buy her a ticket and arrange for a friend to pick her up at the airport.
