Regarding the March 9 Metro article “Has the first couple’s puppy love given way to hard-boiled resentment?”:

I’m thinking that the best way to get eagle mom First Lady to settle down and lay some eggs is to not hover over her nest in a helicopter. Despite District wildlife biologist Dan Rauch’s innocent intentions, please consider that the poor gal has had to fight off those harlots trying to move in on her man, likely putting a bit of a damper on her family-building mood, and now a helicopter buzzing her nest.

I suggest leaving the beleaguered couple alone to sort out their marital issues in private.
