The coining of a new oxymoron

The Texans-only scramble to win the George W. Bush Presidential Library surged into high gear on the eve of today's deadline as Arlington and six other contenders bid for a prize laden with international prestige and hundreds of millions of dollars in economic benefits.

George W. Bush Presidential Library? Let's see... a basement filled with millions of classified documents no one will ever be allowed to see; Karl Rove's first edition of Machiavelli's "The Prince;" an urn containing the ashes of the Bill of Rights; and 100 declassified copies of the only book Shrub was ever seen actually reading, though it is a mystery why scholars would venture to Texas to thumb through "My Pet Goat."

Golly!
If I ever intended to travel to the USA again, that's one highlight of American culture I'd sure want to see.

Do you suppose there'll ever be a World Tour?

Should provide some stiff competition for the stuffed-lizard-and-turquoise-jewelry emporiums on the interstate down there. And I'd bet the Presidential Medals of Freedom would fetch at least $1.98 in the souvenier shop.
