    Harvard Club hides Bush photo near bathroom

    Posted by: Andoni

    Bush_harvard_clubThis past weekend I attended a National Board meeting of the ACLU in New York.

    Our regular meeting venue was not available due to renovations, so we had to meet in a temporary new location - the Harvard Club of New York on W. 44th Street.

    This is a very nice facility. It has lounges, dining rooms, libraries, meeting rooms and overnight guest rooms. The club is peppered with notable graduates of Harvard all over the place, from the main lobby when you enter, to well, the wall down an obscure corridor next to the men's room on the second floor.

    We met in a large room on the second floor. When I visited the men's room for the first time, I noticed the above photo of President George W. Bush on the wall next to the men's room. This is not the place I would expect a picture of the current president of the United States.

    I'm wondering what kind of discussions they had before they hung the picture. Was the picture initially in this spot or did it get moved to this spot as his poll numbers tanked?

    Although this is one of the least prominent spots in the entire building, I can say this. During long meetings where they serve lots of coffee, people make many trips to the men's room. So in spite of its remote location, this 1975 graduate of "The Business School" is viewed quite often. In my case, much more often than I would have liked.

      The only thing more fitting would be George W. Bush urinal cakes.

      This post is cute and funny. But remember the golden days of this blog when every step and misstep of ENDA was analyzed and argued? Is the No on Prop 8 initiative well handled? Are we really going to lose gay marriage in CA? Should I vote for Cindy Sheehan after Pelosi's refusal to cosponsor UAFA, come out against prop 8 officially, etc, etc, or would that be dumb? I'll even settle for, how are the gay republicans reconciling Palin's and McCain's supposedly differing takes on a federal gay marriage amendment?

      I keep a brochure describing the Ninth Circuit's San Francisco courthouse IN my guest bathroom. No glory holes have opened up ... so far.
