If I recall correctly Pres. Bush was actually a member of a "Secret Society" not exactly a Greek Letter Org but close.

Hey ktsnake,

You are right about the secret society, George Bush and W. are both in the "skulls" (and I don't mean phi kappa sigma). But they are both Dekes too.

I knew the first Bush was in a secret society but I did not know about George W. I always heard he was a DEKE but never heard anything about him being in the secret society. That's really interesting

Delta Gamma has some good ones!

We have Julia Louis Dreyfus (Elaine from SEINFELD) and others.

I believe that Barbara Walters from THE VIEW is a Sigma Delta Tau.

Nah, both Dubya and Senior are members of Yale's Skull and Bones society and Delta Kappa Epsilon.

Jenna von Oy was in one of those terrible "sororities are full of witchy girls who are mean to pledges" movies. I can't remember the name of it, but it's been mentioned before on GC. I wonder if that was before or after she went greek?
