I can imagine Richard M whispering to Dean “Hey listen John I didn’t do too bad. I didn’t get shot!
I got interviewed by Frost who paid up. He did nothing afterwards!
No seriously, I’m fine.I will have a wonderful retirement in San Clemente
But why I ask myself did he get involved with a burglary? He had the election in the bag, didn’t he!
And why did he install a voice activated tape machine (not a switch) if indeed any at all in several rooms of the WH and Camp David.
The last bit is rhetoric I guess given the nature of the man. He was a lawyer after all.
Here I am clueless in 2007, doing the tourist schtick. I did get inside. Well, when I say inside, I found myself talking with a very hospitable lady bank officer. Afterwards I wandered around the doughnut-shaped concourse.
As dusk settled, I got an inkling I had stayed beyond my welcome. I was doing no visable harm to man nor beast when a security officer politely asked me to leave.
I didn’t discuss (too much) the possibility of irony in all this. He was armed!
Above, the Howard Johnson hotel opposite the Watergate Hotel. The ‘look-outs’ were positioned somewhere on the top right. What a debacle!
In decades to come, lazy commentators would be so conditioned as to place the suffix-’gate’ to any location or deed where action is perceived to be disreputable. What dicks!
Look at what you started Richard!
