Met with “Sherpa” team who have been preparing (with their colleagues from Europe & Japan) the Ec. Summit meeting in London. Apparently P.M.Thatcher wants to use the informal format we used in Williamsburg. A Ceremony on S. Lawn to honor young Michael Jackson who is the sensation of the pop music world—believed to have earned $120 mil. last year. He is giving proceeds from one of his biggest selling records to the campaign against drunk driving. He is totally opposed to Drugs & Alcohol & is using his popularity to influence young people against them. I was surprised at how shy he is. Had a good meeting with Mexican American business & civic leaders from the border area of Texas. They have some good ideas on changes needed in Mexican law to encourage investment etc. in Mexico to provide employment. They want me to take these things up with Pres. de la Madrid tomorrow. A drop by at reception for Jim Jenkins who is going into business for himself. Then back to the S. Lawn for the ceremony of starting the Olympic Torch off on it’s way to L.A.—arrives there July 28. It will be carried across the U.S. by a relay of runners.
