I have written a couple of times about this before but it appears the moment is finally arriving.

Yes, Bush is bringing out his memoirs.

If you wondered where he has been for the last few months then his publishers apparently have the answer"

"Since leaving the Oval Office, President Bush has given virtually no interviews or public speeches about his presidency," the statement said.

"Instead, he has spent almost every day writing Decision Points, a strikingly personal and candid account revealing how and why he made the defining decisions in his consequential presidency and personal life."

This may well be true given that it does take a while to learn how to read and write.

As you may have noticed from the quote, the book is to be called "Decision Points". I wonder if it is a reference to this brilliant piece of analysis"

"I'm the decider, and I decide what is best. And what's best is for Don Rumsfeld to remain as the Secretary of Defense." Washington, D.C. April 18, 2006

However, the book could be full of serious and weighty political comment like"

"I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5 pound largemouth bass in my lake." on his best moment in office, interview with the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag, May 7, 2006

Anyway, my older posts were about what would be an honest title for the book. My suggestion was Making The World Safe for Oligarchy but someone in my family brilliantly came up with Better the Monkey than the Organ Grinder (I really suggest you look at that organ grinder link"it is very funny indeed).

So I would like to ask you what do you think the honest title for the memoirs should be?

Suggestions in comments please.
