a forgotten anniversary

Yesterday was the 33rd anniversary of the resignation of Richard Nixon, the only president in our history to do so. I remember watching several days of the Watergate Hearings while holed up in a motel in Paradise (near Chico). We did not have a TV at the time and wanted to see what was happening. So we packed up the girls and found a place with a color TV mounted on the wall. We bought bottles of gin, sent the girls out to swim in the pool, and hunkered down for a civics lesson like no other.

Great graph ~ I'll never forget that experience either!
