Even President Bush expressed surprise at a news conference Thursday
when a reporter told him that some analysts were predicting
$4-per-gallon gasoline. "That's interesting. I hadn't heard that," Bush
[Bob Geldof] reports that he asked Bush how he got his laundry done on such
foreign trips. "Laundry, huh?" replied Bush. "Y'know, I've never asked
that. I usually just wear the same thing all day, but if I need to
change, there's always a room I can go to. Laundry, huh? Is this the
interview, Geldof? It's certainly a different technique!"
