The UK Guardian
has an oh-those-crazy-Yanks piece
about locals spending $20 on those "Welcome Home, George and Laura
" signs. Better still is the accompanying artwork by the great Nan Coulter
-- a homemade banner from "the Maloufs," among the eight photos included in the sidebar slideshow (or, as I like to call it, what I see on the drive home). The story says that Hillcrest High School grad and TCU sophomore Patrick Bibb has thus far unloaded some 800 of the signs -- half of 'em to Schutze, though keep it down. Alas, this is a far prettier picture of (near) Preston Hollow than Cindy Adams's bungled description
: "where thick
shrubbery and wrought iron gates with shining monograms shield the
McMansions and verdant football-field-sized lawns from unwelcome eyes." Nice -- except, um, some of those are actual mansions.
Oh, and that T-shirt you see here? A Friend of Unfair Park sent the link for the limited-edition offering
, along with the suggestion that Schutze get hisself one in case he ever bumps into Dubya at the local Home Depot
. Because, right, you know Jim wouldn't actually say
squat to him.
