Fi­nal rodeo

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

“The most ro­bust show of ex­cite­ment for the Bush fam­ily’s blessed event comes in the form of a cof­fee mug honor­ing the event sold by a lo­cal tourist trap.”

So re­ports the Lone Star Icon­o­clast, a weekly news­pa­per in Craw­ford, Texas, which says res­i­dents of the dusty town “that has en­dured a decade in the shadow of Ge­orge W. Bush [were] lay­ing low [over the May 10-11] week­end” while the pres­i­dent’s 26-year-old daugh­ter, Jenna, got hitched to Vir­ginian Henry Hager.

“Oth­er­wise, the lo­cals are avoid­ing the area like the plague,” says the pa­per, adding “towns­folk also ex­pect their com­mu­nity to re­turn back to nor­mal once Bush leaves the pres­i­dent’s of­fice.”
