One supporter of the Read America program was then First Lady Barbara Bush, and Rex & Rita did a couple of appearances with her. She was great -- a truly warm, genuine lady. This picture is from an international literacy day at the United Nations. We were also on Good Morning America with Mrs. Bush, and did appearances all over the country, including the Washington D.C. area, Dallas, El Paso, Los Angeles, Tampa Bay, NYC, and other places.
