Oh, Give Me a Break!

Today on the CNN page, Americans Pick Up Books -- But Are They Reading Them? describes the rise of book clubs on TV and an apparent increase in the number of books people are purchasing though not necessarily finishing. Among the newly avid readers is George W. Bush.

"The most surprising convert to the ranks of the highbrow is Bush, who has evolved from calling the Greeks "Grecians" to reading the Greeks himself. An official recently told reporters that Bush's influences included Aristotle's "Nicomachean Ethics," along with Alexis de Tocqueville, Adam Smith and Cicero."

Yeah, right. Not unless there's a Classic Comics version.
