19. I was surprised by how energetic he is.

 

He's got to be in his mid 70's, I'm thinking.

I heard it on WNYC in NY... around 12 noon on 7/30 but for the life of me cannot find a link.

Here's a substitute link: Diane Rehm's show, a few days previously. Not the interview I heard but an interview about the book... which is something along the lines of: "What Nixon Knew and When He Knew It."

http://www.wnyc.org/shows/diane-rehm/about/

Forty years later... I'm surprised at how I'm NOT surprised at Nixon's behavior. Listening to the tapes and transcripts of same... it seems to me this is... for the most part.... how people in power within bureaucratic organizations tend to think and talk. Thank you , Life, for providing this ugly, painful lesson.

Nixon seems to me now no better/no worse than average in terms of ethics.

The STAKES were much higher, that's for sure.
