The people talking about Bush's attempts to cancel the "Even Start" education program with his budget priorities for some reason fail to mention that it was his mother's project when she was First Lady. Remember the Millie the First Dog book and reading to children.
Maybe it's time to exhume the deceased First Dog, Spot, a daughter of Millie, who was born in the White House, and perform an autopsy. Eliminating your mother's program is really cold. Perhaps the dog and the program reminded him of his own problems with books, the years of "See Spot run. Run, Spot. Run.", were too much. Spot was also a witness to the pretzel incident.
