Bush's Sister-in-Law Revisits Richmond 

But the political process hasn't become the focus of her life in the Bush family. A tall, beautiful, slim woman, she's taken acting classes, often performing in community and professional theater.

She was in Richmond Sept. 22 to talk to about 100 seniors in the auditorium at Westminster Canterbury about her brother-in-law and his presidency. She's clearly a fan, but not an active campaigner. She's too busy, she says. Instead, her time is almost totally taken up by rehearsals with the Northern Virginia Elden Street Players for her leading part in "Thumbs" by Rupert Holmes.

Those who came to hear her reminisce about Richmond or share personal stories about the Bush family were disappointed. Her very brief talk went point by point down the Bush campaign's agenda — not neglecting to recommend the new drug-discount cards for seniors.

The invitation said, "This is not a political debate," and it wasn't. There were no political questions from the floor. — Rozanne Epps
