On bereavement leave this week, mourning the exit of George W. Bush


The Bush Error is finally ending, and many of you may see this as the end of a national nightmare.

For reporters, it’s the end of a dream presidency.

Apparently, George W. Bush has decided to heed the Constitution, for a change, and leave office after two terms.

In doing so, he’s pointedly ignoring my plea in this week’s Voice print edition: “Don’t Leave, George W.! We Need You to Bail Out the Press.”

That’s why I’m bailing out for a few days.

Call it bereavement leave.

See you next week.
