In case you haven’t heard, every living U.S. president will be gathering at the Bush Library Thursday for a big grand-opening party. My invitation must have been lost in the mail (or maybe my SPAM folder), so I’ll be finding my own lunch that day — but it won’t be anywhere near SMU because just about every street around the school will either be closed or clogged with delays.

Here’s the street report from DPD:

• SMU Blvd., between Airline Rd. and Central Expressway.
