Today We're All Irish - and Green: A Fresh & Easy Buzz Round Up Of St. Patrick's Day 2009

Irish eyes, and most others, are smiling today in the nation's capital as residents of Washington, D.C. and tourists who visit, walk or ride by the White House this St. Patrick's Day are finding that both the north and south lawn fountains are "running green." First Lady Michelle Obama instructed the White House staff to dye the water in the famous fountains green in honor of the Irish and St. Patrick's Day today. According to the First Lady's spokesperson, this is the first time in history the White House fountains have been dyed green (or any color for that matter). For those who doubted the Obama's promise to bring change to the White House, this is just one more example that the President and First Lady meant what they said during the 2008 camapign.
