Life as a White House reporter

From the NYTimes, The White House Without a Filter:
MY first day on the White House beat was Sept. 10, 2001. By Sept. 14, I was on Air Force One with fighter jet escorts, heading to New York, where we descended into the smoking ruins of the World Trade Center and the beginning of one of the most tumultuous periods in American history.

Nearly five years later, I am leaving an assignment that assured I was rarely the envy of anyone, including my own bosses. Not long ago, one senior editor at the paper cheerily told me that he could not stand to cover the beat for a single day.
