''My senior year (at Yale University) I joined Skull and Bones, a secret society,'' President Bush wrote in his autobiography, ''so secret, I can't say anything more.''

He doesn't have to. He's practically turning the government into a secret society -- an old-boy, throwback establishment that even holds its secret spy-court proceedings in an elaborately locked, windowless room that sounds similar to the Bones' elaborately locked, practically windowless ''tomb,'' or campus clubhouse.

Bush, a loyal and particularly active member of Skull and Bones, a mysterious, historically misogynist Yale-based secret society, seems to have done almost all he can to promote a level of secrecy in government not seen since the Nixon administration. - snipped from Alexandra Robbins' op-ed in USA Today.
