Pierre Salinger — as good as his word
Pierre Salinger, JFK’s Francophile Press Secretary (imagine such a thing in Bush’s xenophobic White House) died of heart failure on Saturday at the age of 79. He died in a hospital near his home near Avignon, after recent surgery to fit a pacemaker, his wife, Nicole, said. The couple moved to the Vaucluse to run a B&B when George W. Bush won the 2000 election. “He was very upset because he thought Bush was not fit to be president,” Nicole Salinger told the Associated Press. “He said he would leave if Bush became president, and he did.”
Hmmm… I wonder how many of the folks who are currently threatening to emigrate from the US if Dubya wins will do the same.
