There goes the neighborhood

From the NY Daily News:
Houston homie Bush may be looking for a Dallas palace

President Bush won't be leaving his current D.C. home for another three years — but that hasn't stopped gossip that he's already planning to move back to Dallas.

Although Bush grew up in Houston, he raised his family in Dallas' Preston ­Hollow neighborhood. First Lady Laura graduated from nearby Southern Methodist University, which is favored to get Dubya's presidential library.

Some wager the Bushes would resettle in Highland Park, the tony township inside Dallas. Many Bush cronies live there, including Laura's pal Debbie ­Francis, whose husband, Jim, was chairman of the Bush Pioneers fund-raising group in the 2000 campaign.

When oilman Lee Fikes bought an empty Highland Park plot to build a 13,000-square-foot mansion — directly across from Dick Cheney's former home on Euclid Ave. — whispers spread that Fikes was fronting for the First Family.

Dallas Morning News columnist Alan Peppard calls that theory "baloney." Other real-estate oddsmakers think the Bushes might prefer Dallas' Turtle Creek neighborhood, home to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and financier Ed Cox.

The White House had no comment on any of it.

Maybe he can perhaps help out with the SMU tuition which is going up $6000 next year to make way for his stupid library.

I wonder if he'll rent out the guest quarters to the Secret Service to pay his mortgage a la Clinton?

Well, Phantom Professor, I like your subject titles. That's an art in itself.

Interesting blog. I'm looking to do a piece on academic freedom, which I picked up on Megablog. I'll keep you informed if it materializes.

Since you've got readers from around the world, I thought I would add my two cents, as an expat living in the Netherlands.

Cheers.

Better you than us, Prof. We Houstonians already have to suffer Poppy and Bar, plus Neil-and-Maria.

Not to mention all those friends-of-Laura from SMU sorority days. Why did all those girls move to Houston, anyway?

Ah, another Bush hater blog. Why is it that 99% of blogs are either far-left or far-right and just rant and rave on about things that have very little to do with the day-to-day reality of life for those of us who just get up each day and go to work and try to live a good life.

I hope a ring-tone kills you.
