Through the looking glass - Obama's first not-State of the Union

President Obama plans to address Congress for the first time on February 24:

White House officials say that Obama’s speech to a joint session of the House and Senate will have the trappings of a State of the Union address, but it will not be considered one. His first State of the Union speech won’t come until next January.

Which brings to mind the un-birthday scene from Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland.”
