In The Past is Over, a community art project by Helena Keeffe, 7-to-10-year olds at a San Francisco Elementary School were asked to "imagine a speech given by president Bush that would convince you that he has had a change of heart and could actually be the president of your dreams." The resulting speeches, read by a Bush impersonator, run the gamut, from "Bush" admitting that his Twinkie addiction has harmed the country to this imaginary president promising to provide homes for the homeless. (My favorite is by Lumi Sugazawa-O'Neill.) The winners of Keeffe's project won $50 that went toward a cake party for their class.
