According to the highly reputable and most reliable news source The Onion, the CIA wishes Bush would quit blogging:

“Right now, the president insists it’s his right to have it, as long as he doesn’t work on it during White House work hours,” McLaughlin said. “But I believe we’ll be able to convince him, if we let him calm down. And even if we don’t, frankly, I can’t see the blog holding his interest for too long.”

Right 😉

    This is Joanna from Hong Kong and I read your blog accidentally from Blogsisters and I am interested in what you do in the University and the topics that you have chosen to write.
    Nice photography as well.

    Ah, of course. Very similar tone to John Howard’s blog. Kind of funny as a concept but my god do they go on and on…

    (and no, believe nothing you read in The Onion…)

    Oh yes, I had thought of if the news was fake – as I got different versions of George Bush’s weblog from the search engines. But it would be interesting if he had one that exposed most of his personal life/true self.
