  • Julie Mason reports, “A suspcious package prompted the evacuation of the press corps’ temporary White House press room on Jackson Place this morning. A dog apparently sniffed out some explosives in a car parked nearby.” Don’t worry. It was a false alarm.
  • This weekend on C-SPAN2, Book TV will air an “Encore Booknotes” program with columnist Molly Ivins. In 1998, C-SPAN’s Brian Lamb interviewed Ivins about her latest book, “You Got to Dance With Them What Brung You: Politics in the Clinton Years” for the award-winning author interview series “Booknotes.” The interview airs on Saturday at 1:15 pm ET and Sunday at 9:30 a.m ET.
