WEST WING REPORTAGE

What is Kal Penn up to while everyone else at the White House is vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard? NJ fills us in… he “has been given new busywork responsibilities like opening mail and answering Politico interview requests.”

And what do President Obama’s book picks say about him? Slate’s John Dickerson here.

NEWS NOTES

Stars & Stripes: As more journalists seek permission to accompany U.S. forces engaged in military operations in Afghanistan, many of them could be screened by a controversial public relations firm contracted by the Pentagon to determine whether their past coverage has portrayed the U.S. military in a positive light.
