Laura Bush continues to support schools in New Orleans and on Gulf Coast...

Photo shows Laura Bush applauding as 18-year-old Caitlyn Clarke impresses the audience with her speech yesterday to the National Town Hall Meeting on School Libraries at the Ernest Morial Convention Center.

Mrs.Bush was in New Orleans yesterday to speak to the American Library Association and to lend her support to providing libraries to the schools that were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. I suspect that people in New Orleans and on the Gulf Coast appreciate the support that has been provided by Laura Bush. She has made more than a half a dozen trips to the area and she has also played a lead role in raising money for the refurbishing of libraries that were destroyed.

Now you know that there is one member of the Bush family that has earned my admiration!!!
