As President Bush prepares to move into his new Dallas home at the end of his term, neighborhood residents worry about having him close by.
One woman shared her fears as she walked past Bush's house carrying her King Charles cocker spaniel on Friday.
"I am afraid with all the negative press the president has been getting, the whole neighborhood is going to be a target," said the woman, who refused to give her name.
...the exclusive Dallas community the Bush family will soon join has a troubled history of its own.
Until 2000, the neighborhood association's covenant said only white people were allowed to live there, though an exception was made for servants. [emphasis added]
