WASHINGTON — Karl Rove and other White House employees were cautioned in employee manuals, memos and briefings to carefully save any e-mails that might discuss official matters even if those messages came from private e-mail accounts, the White House disclosed Friday.

Despite these cautions, e-mails from Rove and others discussing official business may have been deleted and are now missing.

    Although Mr. Bush’s academic prowess seems a good match for the SMU intellectual mystique, one wonders if this project will be thrust “fully growed” in the midst of your campus, run by outsiders with a continual allegiance to the Rovian tradition of spin.

    For instance, will the “lost” emails be found and put on display? Indeed, will poppa Bush’s historical record – denied viewing be followed by large segments of our current Mr. Bush’s record that is either being erased as we speak or buried under Mr. Cheney’s considerable girth.

    Will SMU insist that as an intellectual society – perhaps even a society of scholars – freedom of speech and therefore full disclosure and full access are more important than getting a first edition of my pet goat into the archives?

    visiting this post a year and a half (or a century) later….how is it going SMU? Will this be yet another campus library rarely visit except at happy hour by students looking for the restroom?

    Academic twittle. Historical drivel.

    Why would you seek a monument to the inept?
