    President George H.W. Bush dead at 94

    Probably the best, most gracious man to hold the office in my life time.

    Thatís sad. He once visited us at a deployed location I was at in 2006 and made sure he shook hands with everyone deployed there. He didnít have to, but took the time to visit us anyway. Best of luck to his family.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. Ė St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    Humble, gracious, and politically ineffective. Proof that nice guys can't do politics.

    IIRC he wasn't forced but rather made the mistake of believing the Democrats when they promised to reduce spending if he agreed to a tax increase.
