Ultimate excuse for 4th grader

We all saw it live on CNN-President Obama writing an excuse note for a 4th grader who cut class to see him in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

We tracked down Kennedy Copus, her dad and the teacher who says a note from the President is good enough for her. Watch Krya's interview.

    With all the President has on his mind he still found time to reach out to a child and make her day. What a surprise that must have been for her coming from the President.

    Barack and Michelle are terrific human beings as well as leaders. They've been the finest first family of my lifetime.

    This is concerning the VA Clinic's
    I've been going to the VA Clinic's since 1979 have have very good with the treatment received.Except I have trouble with the VA Hospital in our area concerning treatment and such. 2004 went to the local VA Hospital for CT Scane of the neck for a LUMP that concerned the VA Clinic DR. Several days later I received a phone call from some x-ray reading company that the VA uses and the report was that the LUMP was a fattie tissue and not to be concerned. Thanks to the VA Clinic DR. who called me after he read the reading and strongly suggested that I have a test done at a VA Hospital for a second reading. Appointment was made and test was done and come to find out I had throat cancer. So at least some VA Clinic's and there DR's are concerned about the Vet's and there medical problem's. This VA DR saved my life. So I have respect for the clinic's and what there doing, with seeing so many Vet's in a days time. It's the hospitals that aren't stafed with the proper DR's and Tech's to care for the Vet's. Also some of the outside agencies the VA uses, Fatie tissue's yea I'd be dead by now if I went that reading.
