Ce Qu'on Ne Voit Pas

Fried Green al-Quedas gives us some Texas notes from underground:
There's a new tourist attraction today in Midland, Texas, with the grand opening of the George W. Bush Childhood Home. ...I wondered how this modest restoration could have possibly cost 1.8 million dollars. The answer is simple - we didn't get to see any pictures of the downstairs, which is really the nicest part of the house..

For example, this is the president's childhood bowling alley. ... There is much more to see in the Bush childhood home - the wine cellar, the basketball and tennis courts, the underground horseshoe pit....
(The title of this post comes from M. Bastiat.)
