meanwhile, back at the palace...

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Some women get flowers, others jewelry. This year, first lady Laura Bush got a formal dinner and an intimate concert by a well-known crooner from her valentine.

For the second year in a row, President Bush and his wife spent the lovers' holiday formally entertaining about 100 friends and associates at the White House.

Singer Michael Feinstein capped the romantic evening by serenading the crowd, which included new Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, actor Chuck Norris -- wearing black cowboy boots with his tux, of course -- singer Wayne Newton and Sens. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Joe Lieberman, D-Conn.

The menu included a tasting of American caviar; rack of lamb and vegetables for the main course; and, for dessert, baked camembert and a puff pastry called "The Lovebirds" -- accompanied by the newly hip rose champagne.

Other details, like the guest list, were being kept under wraps. The media was being allowed in only to see the entertainment portion of the evening.

Yes. That's the way to do it.
More people need to juxtapose Abu Ghraib photos with photos of the Bushes, especially in formalwear.

Keep it up.
