In an American Spectator article, Ben Stein takes us back to the day Nixon resigned. It was 35 years ago Sunday, August 9. Stein worked for Nixon and was in the room when the president gave his parting remarks.

As a result of Nixon's resignation, Stein not only figured he'd lose his job, he was certain that his life was over, that he'd never work again. Well, it didn't turn out quite that bad--Stein worked plenty in the years following.

It's a thoughtful piece and one I'm sure you'll enjoy.

NOTE: I read Stein's American Spectator article the other day. This morning I read another piece about Stein--he lost his job at the New York Times. I'm sure he'll survive.
