  1. George Bush Sr. Admitted to Hospital

    He’s under observation. Former President George H.W. Bush was taken to Houston Methodist Hospital last night with shortness of breath. Just last June, to mark his 90th birthday, the 41st and oldest living president made a tandem parachute jump in Maine. Bush, who has lost use of his legs and suffers from a form of Parkinson’s disease, is being held as a “precaution” in the same hospital that treated him for bronchitis in 2013. President Obama, who is vacationing in Hawaii, has sent his warm wishes.
