    In the release Mr. Bush states that he had "researched" the company. One has to wonder, just how sordid a corporate history would have to be before he would respectfully decline to serve.

    Of course not. Naturally, the only Tenet hospitals here are in and around Boca - and doesn't everyone want to retire there?

    He took advantage of his contacts. I just wonder what "W" will end up doing? Someone said the corporations are already stumped as to just where to put the most stupid ex-president to use after his term is over.

    Its anyones guess. He has helped so many of his friends to get big government contracts that they will be standing in line in offer him a position as their CEO when he leaves the White House. Not that "W" needs the money anyway. His whole family already has more $$$ than they know what to do with.
