C'mon, but Lubbock?

So, Southern Methodist University and the University of Dallas are still in the running for the George W. Bush Presidential Library (and, look, I could probably fit that thing in the closet with all my comic books and old porn). Texas Tech University ain't. I didn't really think that would come as a surprise to anyone. Turns out, I was wrong:

"David Miller, chairman of the West Texas Coalition for the library, received the news from the selection committee last Thursday. 'I am sad and disappointed,' Miller said. 'I am not sad for me. I am sad for the students at Texas Tech and the citizens of Lubbock. But you have to move on and pick up the pieces.'"

Jeez, I would have hated to have been there when the guy found out Santa Claus isn't real, either. --Robert Wilonsky
