On Tuesday, the school year quietly began for Barron Trump, the presidents fifth child and youngest son, who earlier this year enrolled at St. Andrews Episcopal School in the leafy, school-bus-clogged enclave of Potomac, Md.

No hogs named as of yet. But we have two in the freezer in neat little packages from Beau’s trip to southern TX last year. ;)
