Thank you, Mr. President. I want to express my thanks to the White House press correspondents for their hospitality and having me to dinner. I want you to know that we hope that you will all come to the White House. We have the best Filipino chef over there that you can find a lot of. There have been some expressions of concern by members of the White House press correspondents that we have been muzzling the White House staff.

Actually, all we've been doing is warning them of the dangers of background briefings. I want to express my thanks to and I'm sure the thanks to the vice president and all of the guests, to all of the entertainers who came here tonight and helped us enjoy this evening. Speaking for myself, I must say it is a pleasure to have at least one bishop with us these day. Because I recognize that tonight's place has heavy burdens on the White House press correspondents.

I would like to announce that tomorrow morning I'm going to drive to Middleburg and the helicopters would be available for all of them, whatever the. White House press correspondents and the president, whoever he may be, meet, it requires work for both of them. Tonight, however, we met under different circumstances, and I'm sure I speak on behalf of the vice president and myself in expressing our thanks to all of you going too.
