Dallas, TX: 1.13 acres, 8501 sq. ft.: Not another pig farm, but pigs will inhabit it


DECEMBER 4--This is the Texas home that George W. Bush has purchased for his fast-approaching post-White House years. The home, on a Dallas cul-de-sac, sits on 1.13 acres and offers 8501 square feet of living space, according to city appraisal records. The property was purchased for $2.07 million in early-October by Robert McCleskey, the president's accountant, who is listed as trustee on deed records. Built in 1959, the home has been improved with a detached garage (1150 square feet), servants quarters (896 square feet), and a storage building (240 square feet). While the Bush property certainly appears comfortable, it is dwarfed by the 20-acre estate it abuts. That sprawling property (seen here) is owned by billionaire investor Tom Hicks, who, in 1998, purchased the Texas Rangers from a partnership in which Bush held a stake (the deal netted the future president about $15 million). Hicks, 62, was a leading supporter of Rudolph Giuliani's presidential bid and hosted a fundraiser last year at his home--reportedly the largest in Dallas--for the former New York City mayor.

8. My local paper, the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, quoted the neighbors as saying
That the presence of Secret Service agents would make the neighborhood "safer."

WTF?

Sure, Preston Hollow is just overrun with gangs and crime. It's like a scene from "The Warriors" at night there. White people cower in fear.
