Behold, some Earth Day news of a different sort. Recall that while in office, President George W. Bush relished his time outdoors in the Lone Star State, and he drew much derision from the liberal press for his habit of clearing out brush on his ranch, by hand, the old-fashioned way. Mr. Bush's basic penchant for earthy fare is still active. Very active, in fact.
A 15-acre park at the upcoming George W. Bush Presidential Center will recreate a Texas prairie, complete with a wildflower meadow, a new blend of native grasses and even trees transplanted from the former president's ranch.
That limestone, he said, comes from Tunisia and symbolizes the start of the Arab Spring movement.
Mr. Langdale said all of the limestone used is from Texas, except that used for the indoor flooring in the center's Freedom Hall, a light-filled 67-feet-high open space.
