An open letter to the George W. Bush Presidential Library Committee

In view of Southern Methodist University’s rejection to host your Presidential Library, we, the Friends of George, World Association for Recognition committee (FOG-WAR), would like to offer our support to establish a fitting monument recognizing President Bush and his Administration’s efforts toward spreading freedom and the light of democracy in the world.

We have researched a number of appropriate venues to house the history and highlights of this administration.

The “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” site, in New Orleans’ lower 9th Ward, is available at reasonable cost, if a domestic site is your preference.

Internationally, the “GITMO Constitutional Center for Law and Ethics” in Cuba would seem apt, as would the Baghdad “Green Zone of Democracy” in liberated Iraq.

We considered an Abu Ghraib “House of Freedom” venue, but it remains otherwise occupied.

One other possibility for your purview: perhaps a free-floating “Library of Missions Accomplished” set on an American military aircraft carrier?

We are certain that generous terms for any of these options could be arranged.

Sincerely, I.M. Clueless, president; Shirley Ugest, Vice President; Hal I. Burton, Comptroller—FOG-WAR Presidential Library Committee.
