Hmmm, seems like College of the Ozarks has pretty close ties to the Bush family. Am I the only person in this area who is alarmed by that?

I think it fantastic that Laura Busch will be speaking at the college of the Ozarks. Just found out that the two tickets I requested back in April will be sent to me soon. That made my day ! I have much respect for her and there should be more people is this world like her. She has done many, many charitable things that people have no idea about because she does not toot her own horn. I would have liked to seen her husband speak last year but missed that opportunity, maybe there will be another in the future ?? They both are an inspiration !
