This just in from the Borders in Preston Royal: At 8:30 Tuesday morning, George W. Bush will make the very short drive from Daria Place and stop by to sign copies of his "untraditional" tome Decision Points, presently tops on Kayne West's must-read list. Borders also sends these instructions for those considering attending
All customers are asked to arrive early as everyone will be required to go through a security checkpoint. Please leave all bags, coats, and cameras in the car. Wristbands will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis when the store opens the day of the event. Please call the store for details.
Carlos Rich, who handles marketing for the store, tells Unfair Park the store will open at 8, but at previous "big events" several hundreds folks have been known to line up hours beforehand. "We've had people who've spent the night to get wristbands for Laura Bush and Rachael Ray," he says. "But most people will get there between 6 and 7:30 in the morning." Hear that, Schutze?
