Bush talk in Calgary

George W.'s first speaking engagement since leaving office to be in Cowtown

The Dallas Morning News reports the invitations are already in the mail: A chance to hear George W. Bush “share his thoughts on his eight momentous years in the Oval Office,” live, in Calgary, on March 17. The event is not open to the public and is so far away from the Washington nerve centre, or any other U.S. hub, that it screams dry run. Welcome to the lucrative world of the speaker’s circuit, Mr. President.
