Death Becomes Them

The Lyndon Johnson Presidential Library got a bump in attendance in the wake of Lady Bird Johnson’s death, and they have hopes of keeping the magic alive with a new exhibit featuring the man himself.

Tourists with a hankering to discuss the saga of the 1957 Civil Rights Bill and other career highlights will enjoy the presence of a an LBJ reenactor until mid 2008.

Johnson will be played by local Austin actor Michael Stuart, who has impersonated the tall Texan before.
