Yesterday I watched on Cspan the historical signing of the health reform bill. As you might expect there was a big crowd gathered around the President as he sat down to sign it.
Here's the full video clip with speeches and the signing.
But what surprised me was the number of pens he used to sign it. After searching around today I found the number to be 22.
Do you think that's a record number of pens?
No, LBJ used more that 75 to sign the Civil Rights Act. Here's where I found that - Times site.
Now I'm wondering what company makes those pens.
Here's a clip about the signing pens that the White House put out.
( Sure hope they never start using those difficult check-out electronic signing machines. Nobody can sign those dumb things.)
