Steve Jobs’s Widow To Join Michelle Obama At State Of The Union

    January 24, 2012

Did you see this tweet from First Lady Michelle Obama this afternoon:

I hope everyone’s made plans to watch tonight’s State of the Union—where will you be watching? -mo 9 minutes ago via web · powered by @socialditto

If you’re Laurene Powell Jobs – which you’re not – you would be able to respond to the Ms. Obama in person because you would be one of a handful of guests invited to sit in the First Lady’s Box during tonight’s State of the Union Address. Jobs, the widow of Apple co-founder and resident spiritual leader, has been a noted philanthropist in her own right as she’s been involved in several non-profit organizations.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Jobs inclusion among the First Lady’s list of personal guests – which also includes Debbie Bosanek, Warren Buffet’s secretary; Julian Castro, the mayor of San Antonio, Texas); and Bruce Cochrane, chief executive of Lincolnton Furniture – is a suggestion of the themes that can be expected to be addressed in the State of the Union speech tonight.

As for the rest of you? Have fun watching SOTU from the comfortable curvatures of your own sofa.
