50 years ago, 1963: Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon said he was joining a New York law firm and changed his address from California to New York City. The Republican announced his plans from his suite in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel and did not elaborate on whether he had any political plans in New York.

25 years ago, 1988: From the Locals - Support Perkins Schools, Vote YES May 3; Save 20% thru Mother's Day on Pewter and jewelry at Wileswood Country Store; Showboat Restaurant now open for lunch; Water St. Emporium Happy one year birthday; Special Mother's Day gifts at the Basket Occasion.

10 years ago, 2003: Cedar Point was back on top of the coaster heap, claiming the world's tallest and fastest roller coaster with its new 120 mph, 420-foot-tall Top Thrill Dragster, and the most coasters in the world.

He could shake your hand and stab you in the back at the same time.

Good thing we don't hold politicians to the same standards we used to. Nixon was a jaywalker compared to much of what's going on in Washington today.

Those who look to politicians for their moral compass, IMO get what they deserve.

Winnie, thank god for Kennedy. If he were not President during the Cuban Missle Crisis there's a very good chance we would not be here today. The Generals were all urging Kennedy to invade, thank god he kept a cool head. We now know they had nuclear weapons ready and would have used them. One thing would have lead to the next until it would have been to late. If you think I'm wrong, look it up. I don't care who the man was screwing.

"I don't care who the man was screwing."

So you "don't care" that St. John was a philanderer who also enjoyed raping women?

Quite familiar with those days in May when members of the Kennedy crime family helped to bring the world to the brink of war.

Nixon/Kennedy - both scum with different pedigrees.

Winnie, you wouldn't have been fit to light Jacks Cigar.

shucks

Question: Contango, how do you morph a president into being a moral compass ?
Answer: Doesn't matter, I just wanted to get a low blow in.

shucks

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?
