Clergy protest Bush library

You know things are getting REALLY bad for ole G-Dub when even the religious types are protesting against the man. Recall that negotiations are underway to build George W. Bush's presidential library at Southern Methodist University. But, this action has divided the campus by pitting administration and some alumni against faculty members who say the project would be an embarrassment to the school. In a latest development, a group of Methodist ministers launched a petition drive Thursday asking church members to pressure Southern Methodist University to drop its bid for the presidential library. Their petition states: ''As United Methodists, we believe that the linking of his presidency with a university bearing the Methodist name is utterly inappropriate". Ya think?

From High on The Hilltop in Big D!: "I support the library being at S.M.U. because it will give students/instructors/visitors an opportunity to discuss his failed policies in an educational forum. Where better to learn from someone's mistakes?"
