Nixon's Resignation

Doesn't everyone remember where they were the night Richard Nixon resigned? I was in a hotel room in Minneapolis on the way to a friend's wedding in rural Minnesota. I was with my mother, my aunt and my cousin and it was a trip to remember. Anyhow, I felt so much anger for Nixon and the Watergate scandal, but sadness that it came to him having to resign the presidency. To work so hard to get into a position where you could do so much good, and you have to bug your opponent's offices. There had to be a better use of resources than that. I still am curious about the identity of "Deep Throat", and it still does create a good discussion, if you hang around with people old enough to remember it.
