Read about base­ball

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

We couldn’t help but be amused on Nov. 20 when Pres­i­dent Bush, visit­ing a pair of faux In­done­sian class­rooms in Jakarta, was asked by a small boy what his hob­bies had been when he was grow­ing up.

Ob­served the White House pool re­port: “Bush didn’t miss a beat: ‘Base­ball. I liked base­ball. That was my hobby. Sports.’ Then, per­haps re­al­iz­ing that sports was the wrong thing to push in a class­room, even a fake one, the pres­i­dent added: ‘The best thing that I did was to learn how to read.’ Con­tin­u­ing in that vein, the last thing we heard be­fore be­ing pushed out was Bush cau­tion­ing the kids that ‘there are peo­ple who watch TV too much.’ ”
