President Obama hosted a reception in the White House for the recipients of this year's Kennedy Center Honors Awards.
Film legend Mel Brooks was among the recipients who were honored for their contribution to the arts.
Of Brooks, the president said:
"I was telling him that I went to see Blazing Saddles when I was ten. He pointed out that, I think, according to the ratings I should not have been allowed in the theater. That's true," Obama said, adding, "I think I had a fake ID. [pause] But the statute of limitations has passed."........
