George Bush coming to UNT
« on: October 19, 2010, 12:06:30 pm »
For any Compendiumites here from North Texas, our 43rd President will be speaking at the University of North Texas on November 17th. He may not be on everyone's list of top favorite Presidents, but he led this country during my maturing years, so I think it would be of great benefit (to me) to hear what he has to say.

Hah, you were around there all along, eh? I left Denton in May. Too bad, because they finally built an El Fenix there.

Yeah. I heard you were from Texas as well, but couldn't remember in which part. I will definitely need to visit that El Fenix restaurant.

Tell us all about it after you come back from it!
Of course. There's still a month's wait, though. Hopefully there will be a video or something I can link to after the date.

Presumably the audience will be asked to leave their shoes at the door. Then again, he is quite good at dodging them, so maybe that isn't a concern after all...

Sigh. I never got around to writing about this, did I?

Truth is, I didn't go. Tickets sold out way before I even went to buy them. I was severely disappointed. Also, recording the program was prohibited, so very few records of his speech exist. No shoes were thrown, but apparently someone did interrupt the program, and there were protests outside.

Here's a short 12 minutes clip someone sneaked in.

Looks like the speech was held in the pit.
