It's Really More Like a Savannah. With Protestors.
Salon's War Room blog draws a line in the brush: It will no longer refer to President Bush's 10,000-acre getaway spot as a ranch. Over to you, Tim Grieve:
Our dictionary defines "ranch" as either "an establishment for the grazing and rearing of horses, cattle, or sheep that usually includes the buildings occupied by the owner and employees with the adjacent barns and corrals" or "a farm of any size usually devoted to the raising of one particular specialty." The president isn't rearing a lot of horses, cattle or sheep down at Crawford.
We're a little afraid of what's going to happen when they learn that the administration's education reforms have actually left quite a few children behind. -- HOLLY MARTINS
