Really? All you had to do was call the newspapers and let them know?<quoted text>
They could just call the newspaper and announce it over the phone, and the newspaper would print it. That was very common then.
So, how long after Obama was born do you think it would take Ann in Kenya to place a call to her mother in the US, and then her mother calls the newspaper and announces the birth?
If you just had a baby in Kenya, do you think you'd be making that call the very next goddam day? Hell, yeah.
Wow. Perhaps you can explain how it was done since the people I know at the state DOH have a differing view?
