Gold digging?

Posted By on Tue, Sep 8, 2009 at 3:18 PM

A tipster say George W. and Laura Bush are due in Little Rock in the next few days for a "small dinner" in the Heights. Reported hosts: Mr. and Mrs. Joe Ford.  The former telephone CEO spent a little time as a resident of Dallas himself at one time and has socialized with the Bushes recently.

Purpose of the visit? Just guessing here, but perhaps to encourage some Arkansas contributions to the Bush library/think tank planned in Dallas. Ford has favored Bush with contributions before. Ford also, it should be noted, was an important champion of the Clinton Library project. Such libraries are a plus for any city, he has said, regardless of political viewpoint.
