For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
July 20, 2001

Pool Report. Night of Jan. 20

An unusually late night for the president. Also uneventful. The presidential motorcade left the hotel around 7:06 for the short ride to the "outreach event." The normally punctual president ran a tad late because of G-8 protocol that dictates which nations arrive when. The discussion and dinner featured all the G-8 members plus representatives from Africa, Asia and Latin America. The talks were scheduled to include such topics as trade, debt, hunger and the World Bank. The delegates gathered at the Palazzo Doria Spinola, which is the headquarters building for the province of Genoa. The president was neither seen nor heard. Witnesses said Mr. Bush was seen talking intently with French President Jacques Chirac, one of his major foes on Kyoto. Your pool was holed up at Mangini, a pastry shop that opened here in 1876. We left shortly after 11 p.m. for the brief ride back to the Jolly. David Jackson, Dallas Morning News. Room 326 on the boat
