Bush and his wife were taken to a tornado shelter on his ranch on Friday afternoon as severe weather hit central Texas, though they did not have to enter the facility, a White House spokesman said. In the middle of a weeklong vacation, the Bushes and their dogs were driven in an armored vehicle to a shelter on his 1,600-acre (647-hectare) ranch for a brief period as a precaution, said spokesman Scott Stanzel.

So when he learned Friday that the IRS was investigating whether the nonprofit civil rights organization violated restrictions on political activity, he said his first thought was: It's been a long time coming. "If you don't march in step with their views, they have no use for you," said King, 41, about the NAACP. "On the contrary, they will do everything that they can to tear you down." [snip] King, who lives in Atlanta and is a member of the black conservative group Project 21,...
