August 8, 1974 — President Richard Nixon announced he was resigning from office.
I was not sad to see him go.
Watergate defined the beginning of my interest in politics. I remember rushing home from school to watch the Watergate hearings on the TV every day. I think it astonished me that a.) as a teenager I could understand what was going on, and, b.) that adults could be so stupid and petty. A good lesson for life.
