Riding Out the Crisis
After the evacuation of the White House and Congress a few days ago, we learned President Bush was off mountain biking. But for those worried the president wasn't busy during the middle a work day, the Washington Post reports Bush also took some reading with him: "In a photo taken just after the ride, Bush is holding what appears to be a copy of I Am Charlotte Simmons, the Tom Wolfe novel about debauchery on a college campus."
Interestingly, Bush was reading the same book as far back as February.
I guess even Dubya isn't that slow a reader. Turns out there's a better explantion, as noted here. I've been thinking about Theodore Roosevelt's reading, as mentioned here.
