Last week's question:

The Herald-Mail recently asked West Virginia lawmakers what question they would ask President Bush if they had the chance. If you had such a chance - and couldn't do it anonymously -what would you ask him?

· Where's the fence?

· Mr. President, when are you planning to order our military forces to bomb Iran?

· Why did you put the teachers and the children in danger in the Florida school on Sept. 11, 2001, by remaining there? Why didn't your Secret Service react and get you out of the school?

· Mr. President, why did you nominate Harriet Miers to be an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court?

· Mr. President, why do you believe that Mr. Alberto R. Gonzales is the best person in the United States to serve as Attorney General?


· Mr. President, would you go bird hunting with the vice president?

· How can I pray for you?

· Mr. President, was the possibility of getting missionaries of your particular born-again Christian faith into Iraq with the protection of a new Iraqi government the fundamental reason you started the Iraq war?

· Why don't you start up the draft and get these young people off their behinds and away from the do-nothing lifestyle they have nowadays?

· There are thousands of good questions that the president could, but won't, answer. He won't answer the questions because he either doesn't know the answers or he doesn't want us to know the answers.

· Does he think he looks like himself at Disney's Hall of the Presidents?

· Iran is not a threat, plain and simple. Why aren't we touching North Korea?

(Editor's note: We were looking for questions, not the many accusations and denunciations we received. However, those comments were posted on-line for a week at

This week's question:

President Lyndon Johnson's widow, Lady Bird, recently died. One of her passions was the beautification of public places. What public space in this area, as opposed to private property, could use some beautification?
