KALONA, IA—According to family sources, Barack Obama's aunt Claudia, 79, mailed a letter to the president Monday that included a short note and a carefully clipped-out article from the Highland Review newspaper mentioning the United States. "Thought you would be interested in this," read the note, which also had "This is kind of neat" written on the top of the article and the words "United States" and "Washington, D.C." highlighted throughout. "I know you probably saw this already, but it would be a shame if you missed it." President Obama told reporters his aunt Claudia is very sweet and he needs to remember to call her soon.
