The other Bill Clinton

One day this summer, I went to see Bill at camp. A nonprofit in his Clarkston, Ga., neighborhood was running a free day camp at the community center across the street from his apartment complex. When I got there, the huge, grassy field teemed with a hundred or more sweaty kids, most of them refugees. At the edge of the field was a pavilion, and in it, two little boys were roughhousing with a teenage counselor. I explained to the counselor what I was doing there, and asked if he knew where Bill Clinton was.

"Yeah, which one?" he said.

"Yeah, which one?" he said.

Which one? Like, the kid or the former president?

"Which one?" I asked.

"We actually have two," he said.

Two?!

"One's from Haiti; the other's from ... I'm not sure. Africa, maybe?"

"Congo?" I asked.

"That sounds right," he said.

"You have two kids named Bill Clinton here today? On this field?"

"Yeah, crazy, right?" he said. "Popular name, I guess."
