Conan weighs in on Bush Lie-brary

"President Bush is putting together his presidential library and apparently the library is going to cost $500 million, which will work out to $100 million a book." -- Conan O'Brien.

Inside Higher Ed has a long piece looking at various sides of the issue, including suggestions by Methodist ministers that if the GWB presidential library ends up on this campus, the school should remove the word "Methodist" from its name.

Maybe they can revert to a longtime nickname: Southern Millionaires University.

Hey hey hey Phantom P.

Here is my FREE contribution to the literacy campaign. A book should be yours. Another a Shakespeare, another a Cervantes. Then one by Barbara. Finally, one by me. Truly. I can write one.

I'm not sure know how high is the tab gonna run, but if there are $500 mizookies to spend in 5 books, starting to write reads like a good option.

Cheerio!

Wow. One of my friends ODs and almost dies. Another one dies a week later. Now, to top it off, SMU gets the library of an incompetant president.

I'm so glad I transferred.
