    I have a couple of good friends who were acquainted with George at Andover and in West Texas.  Their descriptions are remarkably consistent: arrogant, uncurious, a bully, whose nickname was "the Lip" for the perpetual sneer he used to express his view towards his fellows (and the kids at Andover were all sons of the elite).  However, both tell me that it would be a mistake to view him as stupid.  When he cared about something, his brain worked just fine, they say.  I think that we can conclude that mostly, George W. Bush just did not care, then or when he was in the Oval Office.
