Small Favors

Well, the White House petition site is good for entertainment, if nothing else. One of the petitions that reached the threshold was a petition requesting the Obama Administration to begin building the Death Star. The petition was answered by Paul Shawcross, Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget. It turns out, thankfully, that the Administration does not support building weapons capable of destroying entire planets or (which was perhaps more in question) putting the United States quadrillions of dollars into debt.

Slightly more seriously, you can also get the White House homebrewing recipe for White House Honey Ale and White House Honey Porter.
