100 years ago: The birth of Richard Nixon

On January 9, 1913, Richard Milhous Nixon, 37th President of the United States of America (1969-1974), was born in Yorba Linda, California. Those who are interested may want to visit the sites of the Richard Nixon Foundation or the Nixon Presidential Library & Museum, which includes a Watergate Gallery as a permanent exhibit. As for me, I always commemorate the anniversary of Mr. Nixon's birth and death by observing 18 1/2 minutes of silence.

January 5 marked the 80 anniversary of the death of Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States of America (1923-1929). The Calvin Coolidge Presidential Library and Museum is in Northampton, Massachusetts. Mister, we could use a man like Calvin Coolidge again.
