barack obama's half-sister's husband's parents

Meet Joan and Howard Ng, who have unexpectedly become minor celebrities in their hometown of Burlington, Ontario. They are, of course, the parents of Konrad Ng, husband of Maya Soetoro-Ng, half-sister of Barack Obama. That makes them part of one of the world's most famous political families: Obama's Canadian family says president is like 'son'.

The connection is close enough to make them pseudo-celebrities, a distinction they're still apparently getting used to. Mr. Ng is a retired former scientist with Environment Canada, while Mrs. Ng is a teacher and owns an art gallery. According to the Ngs, Barack Obama is like a son to them. Yes, an extremely famous, powerful son.
