It is Thursday night and it feels–given the headlines–like this week is simply going to rank up there among the most bizarre of the year. So I am taking time to ponder other things and perhaps take a couple of my readers along for the escape that is so needed.
I found a site where all the films that President Nixon watched during his years at the White are all listed by date and location where viewed. OK, that is an odd thing to be searching you may say to your computer screen. But please note this was the week where the continually factually challenged White House Press Secretary said that truth does not matter, but instead only what President Trump thinks is the truth.
So you bet your sweet Nelly I am seeking out all sorts of odd topics to fill my mind with new ideas and thoughts other than what passes for Republican Party politics.
In the second graph below are the abbreviation for where the films were viewed. While the link above has the entire list I am taking only the last months of his presidency and posting them below. Enjoy.
