Letter from William A. Arvola
In #48 of this year, L. Neil Smith posed of George W. Bush the
question, "As President, what would you do....?"

my "veto pen," sit down in a comfy chair, quietly [re]read the
Constitution, contemplate Jefferson's words on "governing best," and
then maybe take a nap.
William A. Arvola
