BARBARA BUSH IS AT IT AGAIN

6

From Crooks and Liars:

On the heels of her highly compassionate message to Katrina victims:
“And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway so this (she chuckled)–this is working very well for them.”

Comes this from the TaxProf:
“Former first lady Barbara Bush gave relief money to a hurricane relief fund on the condition that it be spent to buy educational software from her son Neil’s company.—”It’s strange that the former first lady would want to do this. If her son’s having a rough time of it, couldn’t she write him a check?” said Daniel Borochoff, founder of the American Institute of Philanthropy, a Chicago-based charity watchdog group. “Maybe she isn’t aware that people could frown upon this.”

I’m frowning. Because, we all know that when disaster strikes and you’ve lost everything, the very first thing you want to do is go out and get some educational software. Barbara Bush formed the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy in 1990. (Insert joke here)

According to the Austin Business Journal,

“Neil Bush perhaps is best known for his membership on the board of directors of the failed Denver-based Silverado Savings & Loan Association. Bush was a director of the S&L when it collapsed in 1988. The S&L’s failure cost taxpayers $1.3 billion, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. “

Pretty interesting stuff.

    This is a great signing for the Bears. I would say it is not too crazy to think that he might be Chicago’s best QB right now. I have been a supporter of Grossman but if he doesn’t come through I’m sure Chicago fans would much rather see Griese on the field than Orton.

    Agreed on Moulds…the Bears definitely need a receiver who can stretch the field. Muhammad did that a bit last season, but team’s are going to figure out he’s not the player he was a couple of years ago.

    agree with both of you. One more solid, veteran WR and draft one of the stud TE’s and I believe we can really score some points next year.

    Chicago signs another Big-10 QB? When will they learn! GO LIONS! Restore the roar, mang!

    And the Colts get Vinitieri from New England. Wonder which acquisition will lead their respective team to the Super Bowl first?

    The Colts are the new Bills.
