I attended a meeting at the White House today. The room was nice and picture of the President and the Vice President in candid friendliness were hung on the walls. I knew about half of the people attending. There was a half by half mix of women and men. All were white except from a women of third gerneration East Indian descent and also of third generation descent from the South Seas. The great majority of people wore wedding rings and none of the women wore makeup. I was one of the youngest attendees but somewhere in the middle on level of responsibility. These were mostly statisticians. Nothing got done. I will be attending these meetings for the next two years.
