Just went down to see The Bush Legacy bus in the River Market. Yeah, they’re preaching to the choir, and Bush is out in a few months, but we like revisiting the great moments of the past eight years — Iraq, Katrina, Enron, No Child Left Behind bushwa, gas prices, weakened environmental protection, the national debt and so forth and so on. A nice little handout brings it home in Arkansas: Iraq casualties: 445 wounded, 60 dead; median family income: $37,458 down from $40,244 in 2001; Arkansas dollars spent on the war: $5.2 billion spent on the war and counting.

Though the bus was sponsored by Americans United for Change, a non-profit in Washington, D.C., the exhibits were designed right here in Little Rock, by the Markham Group
