Bush Reads Crichton

Fred Barnes claims that Bush met with Michael Crichton, author of the ultimate crackpot thriller denunciation of global warming, State of Fear, and "talked for an hour and were in near-total agreement." The only thing that raises questions about the accuracy of this story is the claim that Bush "avidly read" State of Fear. Hard to picture him reading anything avidly besides "My Pet Goat".
