Once upon a time,
President George W. Bush read a book.
The book was about a pandemic, not unlike our own.
The book wasn’t published yet. But being the President, he could get a copy ahead of the general public.
He read this book. He became obsessed with it.
The year was 2005 and he had just been re-elected.
President George W. Bush said some intelligent things about a future pandemic and its effects on the USA and the world and gave ideas on what America should do.
This generated a firestorm of comments in another post I made and I’m amazed. None of the comments were about George W. Bush but rather about anything but. I found that fascinating.
