It surprised me too. I knew he was a weirdo but I guess he had staff he could trust to keep most of it under wraps.

different era. still considered the presidency worth protecting or at least the image thereof. heh..unlike today where the current resident considers it more like just another TV show. ugh!
w/ all the stuff that has come out long after presidents have left office makes me wonder just how much we don't know about what is really going on now. press is much more 'intrusive' but also have a president that is much more shady so.... be nice if we got more details in real time but guess not. & yeah i know we do get a lotta stuff now but really feels more like 'smoke & mirrors' misdirection than reality. as he would say...'sad'. heh... so glad you posted this. again..ty! :)
