    From Times Online February 13, 2009 George W Bush tastes life in the slow lane at Coffee Station diner (Jason Reed/Reuters/Corbis) George Bush visits his local diner as President in 2004; last week he returned as just another Crawford resident James Bone in Crawford, Texas. George Bush still likes to wake before the sun rises. No longer, however, does he have an early morning national security briefing to keep him busy. Instead, he turned up last week at a 6.30am meeting of the local chapter of the Lions Club at a diner near his ranch in Crawford, Texas (population 705).

    Leon Smith was all but run out of a small Texas town, not so much for what he did as for where and when he did it. After all, hundreds of others across the country did exactly the same thing at about the same time for perhaps similar reasons without noticeable consequences. Even Smith himself was able to commit his deed a second time a short drive down the road without tumult and uproar.

    CRAWFORD - And you think the country is polarized? The folks at Security Bank, the Yellow Rose and the Red Bull (souvenir shops, not bars), and the Fina filling station where farm elders commune over coffee at dawn in the "Room of Knowledge," are strongly for President Bush, the Republican favorite son whose ranch put tiny, alcohol-free Crawford on the world map. Mayor Robert Campbell, a Democrat, is for Sen. John Kerry, but that has not stopped him from trying to snare the Bush papers for nearby Baylor University when the president leaves office — in January, Campbell hopes. A...

    'Fahrenheit' Draws Mob In Crawford CRAWFORD, Texas, July 29, 2004 Brian Munoz already saw the documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" in a theater, but he and some friends couldn't resist a chance to watch it again outdoors on a muggy summer night - especially only a few miles from President Bush. They were among more than 3,000 people - three times more than originally expected - who sat on lawn chairs, pillows or blankets Wednesday night, soaking in Michael Moore's film that lambastes President Bush's decision to go to war with Iraq and his handling of the 2001 terrorist attacks. "A lot...

    August? Time for Crawford Aides defend ranch trip, say Bush is taking White House with him 08/05/2002 By DAVID JACKSON / The Dallas Morning News WASHINGTON - As President Bush prepares for another August in Crawford, aides are quick to argue that this is not - repeat not - the "monthlong vacation" that is frequently reported. For one thing, it's a little less than a month: Mr. Bush leaves for Texas on Tuesday and returns by Labor Day, Sept. 2. For another, Mr. Bush plans to spend about half those days at public events, either pushing Republican candidates or...
