This past week I watched an HBO documentary called "Nixon by Nixon" that played the infamous Nixon tapes and told the story of his presidency though them. I have read a lot about "Tricky-Dicky" and knew that he wasn't a very nice man, but wow---hearing him say some of the things on the tape really showed what a big jerk the former president really was.
I find it interesting that in June 1973, John and Yoko made a trip to Washington D.C. to sit in on the Watergate hearings. Of course after having their phone tapped and everything they went through with Nixon, it is understandable why they would have such a interest in the hearings. I wonder how many fans they met while they were there? Did the media report that John Lennon and Yoko Ono were in the crowd (they must have since we have these photos). And lastly---I wonder if there is any mention of John Lennon on the Nixon tapes---the man bad talked just about everyone else!
