How many of you know that the first capital of the US was Philadelphia and that George Washington operated from there as the first President? It may have been in my sub-conscious somewhere but I'd have flunked an open-ended quiz show question on this.

So we were pleasantly surprised to learn that her first story while at AP about slaves owned by George Washington has already been published nationally:
The story has been published in papers in Australia and China as well. Typing her name (Rubina Madan) in Google News gets the full list.
We're proud of her. At this time I don't even mind that she thinks well of Obama. :-)
