The story drags on

Did George W. Bush actually serve his time in Alabama? Of all the hundreds of people stationed at the base, not one has come forward to say definitively that they remember GWB reporting in for drills (except for one who claimed to have seen him during periods he definitely wasn't actually there, so he's of questionable credibility).

Well, Gary Trudeau is sick of it, and offering a $10,000 reward for anyone who will come forward with proof that Bush was actually there then. (The reward money will not go to the claimant, but as a donation to the USO in the claimant's name, but still.) Trudeau is putting it up from his own money. As he puts it, "Thanks to Bush's massive tax cuts for people who don't need them, GBT is flush."

What gets me is, whether he was AWOL or not, he was somewhere during that time, and he must have interacted with someone wherever he was. Where are all those people? This is so bizarre.
