Bush's "After-Life" in Dallas

Guess we'd best get used to it -- probably gonna need to come up with a "The Bush is Back" category or somesuch. Till then, though, this sneak peek at the soon-to-be-ex-president's plans for his return to Dallas at the end of the month:

President George W. Bush's "after-life," as Laura Bush calls the post-presidency, is shaping up to be pretty comfortable, with a Dallas office, staffers, Secret Service protection, a travel budget, medical coverage and a $196,700 annual pension, all at taxpayers' expense. However, Bush will be the first president not to benefit from one former lifetime benefit: Secret Service protection.

So, now that we know where he'll live, where, exactly, will he office? I hear there's plenty of space. And in vaguely related news, I too had a cat named after a certain former Texas Ranger: Ruben Slam-wich. --Robert Wilonsky
