I saw a slightly larger increase in Traffic on Hillcrest between Lovers and Mockingbird.

Pushing the topic out of the ditch:

I thought this event was great, and reflected well on Dallas.

Beautiful weather, went off without a hitch, and showcased a beautiful building. Also, all the speeches were short.

We were waiting outside of El Fenix in Mesquite (YES A GREAT PLACE FOR TEX-MEX) waiting for a table last night when my wife spotted a huge plane coming in at a low altitude. I told her it must be AF-1, and then it banked and we got a good look at it. No other planes in sight, not even the customary fighter escort. But we didn't spot it until it was pretty close.

I thought it was a great ceremony-all the speeches were short and seemed meaningful-and best of all all the grown-ups played nice in the "sandbox"! I for one will visit said library when it is "officially open" !

There are only five people alive in the world who've held that office, and regardless of political leanings, that's gotta be one hell of a brotherhood. Imagine spending 4 or 8 years sitting in the Oval Office, with all the responsibility that position holds, and being at a gathering with FOUR other people who've also been there and done that.

The Elder President Bush and President Clinton held considerably different views on most things, but apparently have become good friends in their post-Presidential days. The stories they must be able to share...

Also, as for the Presidential Center "making Bush look good" - well, all Presidential Centers/Libraries do that. I'm assuming the Nixon library didn't focus on Watergate and the infamous 17 minutes of silence, but probably spent a lot of time on his opening relations with China. I take it for granted that a Presidential Library for a given President will cast them in a positive light. It still has value. And yes, it's pretty cool that Dallas has this one (and for the record, I'm not a fan of Bush's actions as President, but that's not the point here).
