At SMU, Some Want Bush's Library; Some Don't

+ More

Debate began almost immediately after Southern Methodist University revealed it had beaten out Baylor and the University of Dallas in the race last month to hold George W. Bush's presidential library. The debate continues today on the website of SMU's Daily Campus newspaper, where hot topics include everything from Pell grants to plans to add a think tank committed to Bush's ideology to the library complex. The New York Times calls that a "public policy institute," just one of the subjects at a Tuesday faculty meeting where SMU professors voiced concerns about the library.
