Just Sayin’

By my count, there are at least four new books out in which Richard Nixon plays a prominent part. There’s Robert Caro’s latest in his LBJ magnum opus, the new Cronkite bio, Dan Rather’s latest book, and “The President’s Club” by Karen Hughes. And Bill O’Reilly’s book about JFK comes out next month. I’m sure Nixon is all lover that one too.

And just this morning I got an email about a new book written by my longtime KABC-TV friend Bruce Herschensohn, who was Nixon’s speechwriter.

Thirty-eight years ago tonight, Nixon gave his resignation speech, and the next day he left the White House for good.

Nixon’s Presidential Library is in Yorba Linda, where two significant earthquakes were centered in the last 14 hours.

Maybe Nixon doesn’t like the way he’s being portrayed. And as we know, he was known for keeping a long “enemies list.” It wasn’t a good idea to get on his bad side, and perhaps it still isn’t.

I’m thinking about taking down a few paintings from my walls and checking the batteries in my flashlight.  Just sayin’.
