I did tell you, didnt I, that the Spring Garden Tours were given a stay of execution?
Tours of the White House itself remained canceled because the cuts have left Secret Service short on manpower to staff them. But there will be enough agents to staff the garden tours, the official said.

Here are the proud grandparents:

Kid President and Little Bo were in the house.
Now lets all get out there and pay our fair share!
If you like your fair share, you can keep your fair share. Until we need more. And as you know, we always need more.
