Grand Lake Theater BEST EVER! Marquee "Prescott Bush Financed Hitler"
Great Grand Lake Theater Marquee "George Bush's grandfather Prescott Bush Financed Hitler Until late 1942" visible from 580 freeway and Oakland's Lake Merritt. Catch it while you can, it probably will be up at least a day.
I had to grab my camera when I saw this , I was somewhat concerned that this was a bit "Deep" background for the potential audience , but my faith was refreshed when in the few minutes I was there taking a dozen or so photos, others joined me and pulled out their cell phone cameras and started commenting on specifics such as Silesian Steel , Harriman (Union Pacific Railroad) Thyssen and Brown Brothers. Conversation touched on Yale University , the secret male club Scull and Bones and some other very dark connections. So I suppose that the subject of the sign really needs no explanation, instead I'll just plug the theater: http://www.grandlaketheater.com/ currently showing the Constant Gardner with Harrison Ford an explicitly political anti-globalization film with a touch of British quaintness.
His full name Prescott Sheldon Bush, born in 1895 , at least he didn't give his son his own name....
