Golf: the new hot-button issue

We know that Obama loves golf even more than Dubya did, but that it's okay, because he's smart'n'stuff.  So, now it appears that Obama won't leave the golf course when a terrorist attempts to blow up a plane, but will leave when an unnamed friend's family member gets injured.  Don't worry, though - it was only a "brief delay" to Teh Won's golfing game:

President Barack Obama abruptly ended his golf outing and sped in his motorcade to his compound Monday after he learned a child of a friend was injured while playing on the beach.

Members of the first family were fine, a White House official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of a reluctance to discuss personal matters involving the president.

Journalists when they returned to the secured neighborhood where Obama was staying saw an ambulance speed past with its lights on. The ambulance then left the neighborhood with a black sedan trailing.

The president was playing golf with friends from Chicago who joined him on his holiday vacation. The White House is not identifying which friend's child was injured.

After a brief delay, Obama returned to the course.

My favorite is the title of the article:  "Obama friend's child injured, golf interrupted".  (My emphasis, of course.)  How tragic.
