Oops; They Did It Again

The embargo on Laura Bush’s memoir, to be published next week, is broken today by the New York Times, which managed to find a copy at a bookstore.

The revelations the Times reports are a bit tepid; Laura Bush scolds people for criticizing her husband and justifies his actions (including the Katrina flyover). She does, however, address an issue she has not spoken about publicly before; as a teenager, she ran a stop sign and killed a fellow high school student. She says the incident caused her to lose her faith for many years.

She also implies that she and the president may have been poisoned at a G-8 Summit, but the reported evidence is pretty weak.
