Mr. Peacock is a certifiable dish queen, but has to question the motives of the $485,000 set of new china the Bushes recently purchased for the White House. Admittedly, it was paid for through a charitable foundation—but why now? Especially with our fragile economy, the wars, et all—it seems like a very poor decision. If the china was that "wore-out"...then the Bushes should have been more gracious, and let the Obama family select a new set of china. Nancy Reagan was severely criticized for purchasing china at an awkward time—but at least she had good taste.
