Mary Ann here to talk about the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner tomorrow, what we call Hollywood on the Potomac, or the prom. The latest news on the VIP guest list is that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin won’t be there. (She’s dealing with flooding back in her state.) Too bad, because where Sarah Palin goes, stories follow. _______________________ Washington, D.C.: Hey Sleuth — Why did Sarah Palin back out of the dinner Mary Ann Akers: She has declared a state of emergency in Alaska because of flooding.
