Dale’s Daily Data

From weird and wacky to really informative, actually, Dale Mussen gives you a new piece of trivia every weekday morning. (Don't worry, we won't tell your friends where all that knowledge came from!)

A Pretty Special Bus For The President To Ride
It really was a relative few who got to see the president in person as he began his bus tour across New York State and into Pennsylvania yesterday. Many, many more did get to see the presidential motorcade, and you really have to be impressed with the level of security.
