Every day, in every way, I see more and more morons!!!

Yup. 99.99% of the World's population cannot spell the first name of our President. And... we feed, clothe, and heal these people. (sigh)

Does the gift shop sell condoms and cigars?

Sounds like a great place for me if I were 40 years younger.

Bill should hire a K-Mart marketing team to work the "Blue Light Special" theme. Of course, there would be pushback from the anti-seman dropping society; of coarse reported by the New York Tymes.

Hey Doug, I'm certain you can play this better than I.

Cheers

I will have to question whether 41 million vehicles pass by that Library on I-30 every year.

Back In '84, I broke down with a dead Volkswagon alternator just prior leaving Texas. I got towed to some town that was designed to help. The repair in Texarkana got me as far as Ohio.

Anything else in Little Rock would've cost me more - probably in more ways than one...

I visited the Clinton Center in April and May and found it to be the most interesting and best organized presidential library/center I've visited. I've been to all except the Reagan Center and I'm planning a visit there in August. The wildly unthinking mob on this site would savage the Clinton Center: (1) even though never having seen it, (2)if they secretly were impressed with the technology and historic value of the exhibits and artifacts (which any reasonable person would be) but their bravado and unrelenting hatred would rather have them die of a coronary occlusion than admit the curator and staff did a good job, or (3) are too mentally impaired to appreciate the well portrayed aspects of eight years of, on balance, a successful American presidency.

Being eaten up and all consumed by such misplaced ideologically fervency must be a full time occupation preventing one from enjoying a real life.

I can understand 100,000 locals going the first week...just see the thing. But after that...no one goes to Little Rock for anything. So the remaining 265k people...if there were that many...are probably school kids from the whole state who were forced to go...because it is the one and only presidential library in their state. I can see alot of history teachers signing up for such a field trip, just to get our of that classroom. And consider this...probably half of the 365k...left at lunch and got a bucket of southern fried chicken...and returned after lunch, to be counted a second time.

I wouldn't walk across the street to see anything about the Clintons.

I damn sure don't need the Clintons or you telling me about the quality of MY life.

365,000? Does that include the homeless people that are living underneath the library? They were chased out of the area for the gala opening. They must be back by now.

I'd rather go to the greater Bugtussle toadstool museum than to the Clintoon Library and Massage palor. But that's just me.

WRITTEN IN STONE: AN ARCHITECT DEFINES THE CLINTONS
virtualclintonlibrary.blogspot.com

 

 

by Mia T, 12-30-02

 

 

 

 

 

f mutability of meaning was necessary for the survival of the clintons--their survival hinged ultimately on the deconstruction of words and laws--it is more than a little ironic, and a manifestation of the special sway and shortsightedness of the pathologic ego, that clinton's monument to himself will necessarily define the clintons with the permanence of great inviolate places of iconic architecture.

Whereas a huckster removes meaning from institutions--the wife picked up where the husband left off--an architect encodes meaning in buildings. James S. Polshek, the architect with the dubious distinction of having been commissioned to build the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, believes that a successful architectural solution must necessarily be rooted in relevance.

Just as Polshek's buildings have physical layers, so too do they have layers of meaning. His Rose Center for Earth and Space, for example, is informed formally and programmatically by the historic architecture of a designated landmark even as it redefines itself, (often too self-consciously, in my view), in Star-Trekian terms. Reduced to its essence, the building is the nascent universe before the Big Bang, the promise of the undifferentiated cell in its mother's womb.

The "bridge to the 21st century" was, perhaps, clinton's most delusional conceit, so it is not surprising that it would become clinton's self-referential metaphor of choice. His library was to be that bridge, if he had anything to say about it...

 

The architect is often the master of the inside joke, witness Robert Venturi's postmodern chairs. Venturi exploited--unabashedly and with abandon--the vocabulary of Las Vegas, its stage-set-as-reality and its roadside culture--bright, clashing, ugly and fake. The architect's inside joke is his hedge against the sycophancy that comes with patronage.

The flip side of the encoded meaning of the architect is the terrorist's decoding of it. To bin Laden, the World Trade Center was Jewish capitalism encoded in urban space. If Polshek's vision of clinton's library is a bridge, the inside joke is that, at best, it is a bridge to nowhere.

More likely, it is a bridge to the 7th century...or a doublewide to house clinton double-speak. Take your choice.

I guess this vid of his presidential pranks must be popular.

Was the man who was wearing his 'Gitmo' t-shirt listed as one of the visitors? In his picture, the parking lot looks empty.

"I'd never even been to Arkansas, but last year we planned to go to Clinton's birth home in Hope, up to Hot Springs (where Clinton grew up)

From what I have seen..he never really has grown up!
