Their exchanges, in private at the start of his state visit and later at a joint news conference, preceded Mr. Obama’s speech to an estimated 6,000 people at the Brandenburg Gate, near where the Berlin Wall once stood and other American presidents — John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton — had paid tribute to the German-American alliance against outside threats from communism to terrorism.

Do you think Phil Mickelson feels better after avoiding a $400,000 tax bill?
Back in January, Phil Mickelson said he would “be making some drastic changes” to reduce his tax burden in
Holding a lead at the U.S. Open on Sunday would have been a change in the wrong direction. For a record sixth time in his career, Mickelson finished the U.S. Open as the runner-up. By tying for second place, he earned $696,104. Had he held on and won the tournament he would have made $1.44 million. He cost himself $743,896 in prize money by failing to close the deal on Sunday.
