First lady to ap­pear on Let­ter­man show

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

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.
