Forrest Bush

From Holden:

Rolling Stone recounts the preznit’s lost year in Alabama, leading me to wonder if this encounter influenced the creation of a certain literary and film character:

Bush had a regular group of drinking buddies he hung out with, and during his stay in Alabama he was said to have dated an array of local young women, among them Emily Marks – “One of the most beautiful women you have ever seen,” McLennan says – and Baba Groom, the estranged wife of writer Winston Groom, who years later would write Forrest Gump.

In other music news, Eminem says Bush sucks.
