Q: Larry, does the President have any reaction to the announcement—the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, that AIDS is now an epidemic and have over 600 cases?
MR. SPEAKES: What’s AIDS?
Q: Over a third of them have died. It’s known as “gay plague.” (Laughter.) No, it is. I mean it’s a pretty serious thing that one in every three people that get this have died. And I wondered if the President is aware of it?
MR. SPEAKES: I don’t have it. Do you? (Laughter.)
Q: No, I don’t.
MR. SPEAKES: You didn’t answer my question.
Q: Well, I just wondered, does the President—
MR. SPEAKES: How do you know? (Laughter.)
Q: In other words, the White House looks on this as a great joke?
MR. SPEAKES: No, I don’t know anything about it, Lester.
Q: Does the President, does anybody in the White House know about this epidemic, Larry?
MR. SPEAKES: I don’t think so. I don’t think there’s been any—
Q: Nobody knows?
MR. SPEAKES: There has been no personal experience here, Lester.
Q: No, I mean, I thought you were keeping—
MR. SPEAKES: I checked thoroughly with Dr. Ruge this morning and he’s had no—(laughter)—no patients suffering from AIDS or whatever it is.
Q: The President doesn’t have gay plague, is that what you’re saying or what?
MR. SPEAKES: No, I didn’t say that.
Q: Didn’t say that?
MR. SPEAKES: I thought I heard you on the State Department over there. Why didn’t you stay there? (Laughter.)
Q: Because I love you, Larry, that’s why. (Laughter.)
MR. SPEAKES: Oh, I see. Just don’t put it in those terms, Lester. (Laughter.)
Q: Oh, I retract that.
MR. SPEAKES: I hope so.
Q: It’s too late.
Wow. Just wow.
He can’t forget about sweet childhood memories of Halloween. He remembered that this day was October 31st. He knocked a house and said “Trick or treat,” however, this country doesn’t have the event, so he was called the police and questioned for three hours.

Is that it addresses a civic matter as a physics problem.
Is that it boasts about its costs relative to high-speed rail with none of the difficult last-mile considerations that the latter has accounted for. Hyperloop goes from Sylmar to Hayward, not from Los Angeles to San Francisco. And do…
Did you know
With the American
There’s a big headline about it
In New York
In the lede

For the show
For which he is an executive producer
That others are dissatisfied
WIth the American
Which is to say
That people must agree with Frank Rich
Because they like a thing
That Frank Rich
Has helped make.
It may take me
An entire afternoon

The robot will work at moon to gather substances. Now we are testing it. It has been working well and it brought substances. There was a piece of paper as one of them. There were messages from my boyfriend that was a marriage proposal.
