Good old super-conservative Nixon

»» On this day in 1970 President Nixon signed a bill into law banning cigarette ads on radio and TV.

I'd forgotten that one was his. Good old super-conservative Nixon.

Just watched again the Doctor Who featuring Nixon. It was not a bad portrayal of him, not demeaning. Nixon was played more as deer-in-the-headlights than the usual devious & scowling fiend. And it was pretty funny when, as part of the plot, the Dr tells Dick he has to tape everything. And, finally, tells him, you'll always be remembered; that was kind-of sad.


Morning, Glories. Pray today that truth will out.
