1. Reading about Biden's errant child, it made me wonder about the Bush twins. What sort of messes are they in? Back when Bush was in office & they were young, I would have definitely predicted they were headed for trouble -- children of privilege, raised in a bubble, etc. etc.

2. Well, it turns out Jenna is ... running a wildly popular book club. That chooses non-mainstream authors. And is getting millions of people to read more. Whaaa?  https://www.bookbub.com/blog/jenna-bush-hager-book-club 

3. Meanwhile Barbara co-founded & helps run a health-focused nonprofit and speaks out on behalf of LGBTQ rights. Whaaa?  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Bush_(born_1981) 

4. Both seem to have taken their privilege seriously and tried to use it to do good things in the world... in contrast to many, many other children of politics, on both sides of the aisle. No real point here. Just seems like a nice, good thing in a dumpster-fire world, so. </fin>
