Asked whether he was still the same person after being president, Bush said, "I didn't change my basic values."

"I loved my wife then. I love her now. I realize my most important job was to be a loving father, and it is still my most important job. I believed in an almighty, then my belief has been strengthened. You've got to say I'm a little wiser. My knowledge of the world is more profound,"

If you're not going to give police your real last name, you might not want to have it tattooed on your neck. Darnell Frazier is shown in a photograph released by St Paul Police Dept., Ramsey County, Minnesota. Frazier said his name was Darnell Lewis when questioned by a police officer for jaywalking. The officer noticed the name Frazier tattooed on his neck and found that there were two outstanding warrants on him. In 2002, Frazier pleaded guilty to the Sept. 20, 2001, burglary of an Arab-owned convenience store in St. Paul — a crime his accomplice told police was revenge for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
