4. That's the impression I got

Mind you, this was almost FIFTY years ago. GHW Bush was the guy who did my alumni interview for my application to the high school he had graduated from in 1942. I was only there for my senior year, having been in Spain before that. I HATED the place, although I met their woman headmaster almost 30 years later, who swore up and down that the school had done a 180 since I was there. She noticed at the time that I had a 13 year old bilingual daughter who was smart as hell. But she never even applied. Bush's sons W and Jeb did go there, but I mercifully never met them.

HW was a Congressman from Houston at the time, and he seemed a genuinely nice guy, though about as devoid of dynamism a you could get and still be breathing. If you had told me at the time that he would soon be DCI and then President on down the line, I would have told you to come back when your acid trip was over.
