onBeing

onBeing is a video project I made while I worked at The Washington Post. It's based on the simple notion that we should all get to know one another a little better. You'll find video portraits that introduce you to the musings, passions and quirks of all sorts of people. Every week I interviewed and put a spotlight on one new person and the onBeing community grew. I hope you enjoy meeting these folks and thanks for stopping by! -- Jenn

onBeing: The White House Turkey

On November 20, 2007, President Bush gave an official pardon to two turkeys, May and Flower, for the Thanksgiving holiday. I had a chance to interview May in his posh digs at the Hotel Washington near the White House in downtown D.C. He was more photogenic than I expected, well-mannered, and an overall lovely turkey. Glad he agreed to the interview, glad he was pardoned.
