image for Yogi Berra to Join George Bush on Book Tour
Mr. Bush is a former co-owner of a baseball team.

Baseball great Yogi Berra, author of "The Yogi Book", will join former president George W. Bush, author of "Decision Points", on a national tour to publicize their books.

Mr Bush said, "Yogi was assisted by a ghostwriter, so I'm pleased to be joined by a man of faith like myself. Yogi is a credit to his native India.

"Yogi's life is a great story of the triumph of the underdog, he was always behind the other dog, then he got up on top of the dog and finally achieved his life-long dream."

Mr. Berra said, "George and I are going to tour all of America and then New York. Our travel schedule is tough. I was hoping to see some sights, but the tour is all books cuz we're all booked. This autobiography is different than my others cuz this one's about my own life."

Concerning their careers as authors, Mr. Bush observed, "Yogi and I are both famous for being quotable. I'm rather well-known for making up new words, something writers call 'neo-wordism'."

Mr. Bush had intended to be joined on his national tour by former vice president Dick Cheney. However, Mr. Cheney's memoir could not be translated from its original Klingon in time for the tour.
