Barbara and I wish we could have joined the U.S. delegation honoring President Mandela today. He, and his countrymen, are in our prayers.

The 41st Commander-in-Chief George H.W. Bush has finally succumbed and joined Twitter. Perhaps it’s to keep an eye on his children, perhaps it’s comment on how much he probably hates Obamacare, either way, it’s nice to have the wise old man on board.
Who will be the first celeb to have a Twitter conversation with Bush? Kimye? Paris Hilton? Perhaps, maybe, Bieber?? His first tweet was honorable, lamenting his inability to make it to South Africa for Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, odd, considering Bush famously refused to denounce apartheid when he was in office.
