Dear Friends of "FOX & Friends,"
This past Friday my wife picked up my son, Peter, who has now completed his first year of college. There's good news and bad news with this. The good news, for us, is that he's healthy and happy and ready for summer. The bad news, for him, is he's healthy and happy and he's getting a summer job and haircut as soon as I can figure a way to wake him up before 2 p.m.
So it was with great interest we chatted today via satellite with Johnny Lechner, who is currently a student at the University of Wisconsin. He could have graduated this week, however at the last moment he decided that he'd like to prolong the college experience another year. IF he graduates next year, he will have been an undergraduate for 13 years! Can you imagine that conversation with his parents? "Hey, is it OK if I go to college on the 'Baker's Dozen Year' plan?"
Johnny told us he enjoys the college life and, if you look at his Web site you'll see why. Johnny is "Mr. Popular" at Wisconsin and I've seen him amid many a pretty coed. Who wants to leave dorm life and get a dreary job over at some place where you have to keep regular hours, when you can stay in bed until 2 p.m., take a few classes in the afternoon and then party all night long? All right maybe Madison isn't SoHo in the "party all night" department, but I'm sure if there's a party in Madison's zip code, Johnny Lecher knows about it. "Here's Johnny!"
Good luck Johnny!
Monday night, the president of the United States presents his plan for immigration reform at 8 p.m. ET on the FOX News Channel. Actually, I think it may be on the other information channels as well, but why the heck should I promote C-SPAN? (Unless Brian Lamb wants to send me a fifty.)
Dan Bartlett, special counselor to the president, was on our show (before the professional college kid) and outlined Mr. Bush's speech from the Oval Office. (Bartlett should know, he helped write it!) The president will call for a guest worker program, tighter border security, which could include dispatching several thousand National Guardsmen to the southern border and cracking down on employers who knowingly break the law by hiring illegals.
When asked if the guest-worker program wasn't really amnesty, he said it was not and then offered that the president would explain tonight what was and was not amnesty. This I'm interested in hearing. As I'm sure all of you are as well. So tune in tonight for the best coverage and analysis on television, and then join us tomorrow starting at 6 a.m. ET for the post-game show on "FOX & Friends First"!
Have a great day and we'll see you in the morning!
Four-Year Graduate, University of Kansas
