Everythings Coming Up Nixon For Me & For You!

Good Times Won’t Be Forgotten  nixon-katherin-graham.gif

Frost/Nixon lumbers onto more of the nation’s screens this weekend, but America’s infotainment complex apparently believes in putting  a little touch of Nixon in everything they do.

Up next: HBO thrills once more to Washington Post Publisher Katherine Graham as all that stood between us and fascism.

Her storied Pentagon Papers and Watergate confrontations with the Nixon administration are tales we tell children in Washington, while passing swiftly over her heroic union busting immediately afterwards.

Nixon stories are well on their way to being the thoughtful person’s Woodstock anniversary, events endlessly replicated in news and pop culture until the issues are reduced to “iconic” personalities,  anyone alive at the time dies or rioting spoils the party.   woodstock-riot.jpg
