In a dramatic departure from existing White House procedures, President Obama requested today that his staff start cc’ing him on stuff.
Look, I know a lot of you think I’m really busy and you don’t want to bother me,” the President reportedly told his staff in an Oval Office meeting. “But cc me anyway. It’s good for me to keep up on what’s going on around here.”

The Stone Forest of Madagascar
The Grand Tsingy of Bemaraha in western Madagascar is the world’s largest stone forest. Isolated and inhospitable, this huge collection of razor-sharp, high spiked vertical rocks of eroded limestone looks like the last place where wildlife would thrive.
But despite its cold, dangerous appearance, the labyrinth of 300 foot stones is home to a number of animal species, including 11 types of lemur. Its name “Tsingy” translates as ‘where one cannot walk’.
