Set your recorder, mom!

White House reporter Helen Thomas profiled on HBO

...Next week on cable network HBO, Thomas, 88, makes a rare appearance as an interview subject in a documentary produced and directed by filmmaker Rory Kennedy, whose uncle "Jack" was the first Oval Office occupant Thomas followed as a reporter...

A few months ago, mom told me about going to see Helen Thomas speak at, um, Florida Atlantic University, because someone she knew had tickets, but couldn't go. Anyhoo, mom wasn't terribly familiar with Thomas' slant on things so it was an interesting evening.

I meant to dig this up for her at the time, but never got around to it. Top 10 Tony Snow exchanges with Helen Thomas.
