    I spoke to Tutu only briefly on the stage during the ceremony, after I got my diploma, but it was an honor. A remarkable man who did a lot of good for his country. I met Obama (and his wife) in late 2010 at a Democratic fundraiser and we got to talk a little more than I did with Tutu. Giving the First Lady a smooch (with her permission) was also fun. I admire them both.

    Lemme see... OK, our next letter is
