First lady to appear on Letterman show
The first lady will appear on the “Late Show With David Letterman” on March 19. Mrs. Obama will discuss her Joining Forces initiative, which supports military families, and her plans for the program’s one-year anniversary.
CBS, which airs Mr. Letterman’s show, says this will be Mrs. Obama’s first appearance on the program. But she has made other stops on the late-night talk show circuit to promote her initiatives and stump for President Obama’s re-election campaign. Her recent appearances include “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” and Jimmy Fallon’s “Late Night” program. Both shows are on NBC.
A column in Monday’s editions incorrectly stated the nation’s dropout rate. According to America’s Promise Alliance, 7,000 high school students drop out each school day, or one every 26 seconds.
