Driving while drunk, illegal, and related to the president

Embarrassing relatives go with the territory when you're president of the United States. However, if you are Barack Obama, you can count on the New York Times not only to bury the story, but to omit it altogether. I was puzzled this morning not to see any mention of Uncle Onyango, arrested in Framingham for drunk driving and being held on an immigration "detainer"  (something like a retainer except that it's injurious to one's freedom of action.) So I did a search on the NYT website and got this response:

Your search - Onyango Obama - did not match any documents under Past 30 Days
It's not as if the NYT doesn't have access to the Boston Globe. They own it, after all. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
