WASHINGTON--Vice President Joe Biden popped into the White House briefing room on Tuesday afternoon, a short stop on a tour with his in-laws.

The stop--maybe all of 90 seconds--happened after White House Press Secretary Jay Carney wrapped up his briefing and there were just a few reporters sticking around---including me, because the cell reception in the basement, where the Sun-Times has work space, is so lousy. (But the reporters who share the space with me are the best.)

Biden said the folks with him was Jimmy Snow and Kim Snow, who he said was his "wife's younger sister." Everyman should marry into a family with five sisters, he said.
