Still going strong at 75 President Bush's only daughter, Dorothy Bush LeBlond, married a former aide to one of Mr. Bush's Democratic critics yesterday afternoon at a private ceremony at the Camp David presidential retreat.
About 130 guests attended the wedding of Mr. Bush's daughter, nicknamed "Doro," and Robert Koch, who until last week worked for House Democratic leader Richard A. Gephardt, the White House said in a brief statement.
It was the second marriage for the 32-year-old bride, who has two children, ages 7 and 5, from her first marriage. It is the first marriage for Mr. Koch, 31.
The White House had been reluctant to provide any details of the ceremony. "She just wanted a quiet wedding for family and friends," said Anna Perez, press secretary to Barbara Bush, the bride's mother.
Perot and barber: a 20-year relationship
When Ross Perot finds something he likes, he sticks with it -- like the military-style hair cut he's worn for decades and the barber who keeps it trimmed close.
For 20 years, Mr. Perot has made a weekly visit to Bob Colombe's barber and styling shop in Dallas for a trim. His son, Ross Perot Jr., gets his thicker coif trimmed there just slightly less frequently. The undeclared presidential candidate pays $10 for his haircuts.

Marriage to Tyson taught Givens plenty
School-of-hard-knocks-wise, 18 months of marriage to boxer Mike Tyson equals three years of normal Hollywood blur, actress Robin Givens says in Cosmopolitan. "I feel like I woke up at 27. Things were going so quickly there, I feel like I should be 23."
Their tumultuous, highly publicized marriage suffered a TKO three years ago. Tyson is now doing time for rape. Ms. Givens, who stars opposite Eddie Murphy in the movie, "Boomerang," which opens at area theaters Wednesday, says she's learned a lot. "I was a person who thought she knew everything she needed to know. Now I have great respect for anyone who's been here a day longer than I have."
Bush to be on hand for Petty's last race
When Richard Petty races for the last time at Daytona International Speedway, in the July 4 Pepsi 400, President Bush will be there. Ronald Reagan is the only president to have attended a NASCAR race. That was in 1984, when Mr. Petty won the Firecracker 400. That also was the last time Mr. Petty, who has had 10 victories at Daytona, won a race.
