I heard some very sad news this weekend. Socks, the First Cat during the Clintons' eight years in the White House has died of mouth cancer.
I always liked seeing Socks on the TV in the 1990s. It made me hopeful that the world was in good paws. I think a good part of the economic boom of the 1990s was due (in a small part) to having Socks in the White House.
My condolences go out to Chelsea, Bill, and Hillary.
