The Nixon tapes
New Yorker columnist Paul Slansky writes: One of the happiest things about life in America is the certainty that, every year or two, a fresh batch of Nixon tapes will be released to the public. In the past few weeks, students of the thirty-seventh President have been busy working their way through four hundred and twenty-six more hours of very special Presidential conversations, bringing the total to 1,779. Slansky has sieved thirteen quizz questions out of those hours of talk. Can you answer this one?:
True or false: Nixon suggested that the famous photograph of him standing next to Elvis Presley was a fake.
I won’t give the shocking answer away. You’ll need to read Slansky’s article. (Hint: It’s question 5, and the answer is at the bottom of the page).
