I was at a dinner party last night when of course talk of the Bushes came up, and we were talking about the news that was recently released about how much it was going to cost taxpayers to protect Dubya after he was no longer president (to which my host suggested that we should just go ahead and shoot him, and save everybody a lot of trouble; can't say I disagree). Someone brought up then about how Laura Bush apparently wants to move to, and settle in, Dallas.
I guess that's partly confirmed by this story talking of a protest by SMU "Facutly, Administrators and Staff of the Perkins School of Theology" of tentative plans to locate the George W. Bush library there at SMU. From the letter:
"We count ourselves among those who would regret to see SMU enshrine attitudes and actions widely deemed as ethically egregious: degradation of habeas corpus, outright denial of global warming, flagrant disregard for international treaties, alienation of long-term U.S. allies, environmental predation, shameful disrespect for gay persons and their rights, a pre-emptive war based on false and misleading premises, and a host of other erosions of respect for the global human community and for this good Earth on which our flourishing depends."
"[T]hese violations are antithetical to the teaching, scholarship, and ethical thinking that best represents Southern Methodist University."
Call me hateful if you want, but I'm already reveling in how cruel history is going to be to George W. Bush. I think my hatred for him borders on the pathological.
