Bush no stranger to Camus
Oddly enough in this Camus dominated week it turns out that President George Bush read The Outsider (or The Stranger in some versions) as part of his holiday reading in a ten day vacation on his ranch and according to a White House spokesman decribed it as "an interesting book and a quick read". The world might have differing views about Bush (see today's Independent front page story as an example)but at least he is prepared to read something that is thought provoking rather than the British Members of Parliament who put The Da Vinci Code as their number one favourite summer read.
