So, for my final exam, one of the options was a bit of time travel / historical speculation, where students are, in essence, tasked with explaining the mechanics of a particular event by removing a key element. I like to offer one wide-open kind of question for the more daring and creative (with the understanding that I expect a lot for the answer). Anyway, what does this have to do with Nixon? One response has been to prevent the War on Drugs by going back in time and doing drugs with Dick to show him how much fun it is to get stoned … and if that doesn't work, "kill him or something." There are times when I absolutely adore these kids' minds.
Didn't Elvis do that already?

It's weird that Nixon was a pretty committed drunk, but the idea of him smoking, snorting, or injecting is unfathomable.

I've read that Nixon had a real issue with mixing alcohol with pills...so he wouldn't drink a lot...but because he was also popping downers to help him sleep...big time issues. I've also read that during the most tense hours of the Yom Kippur Way in 1973, Nixon was passed out drunk in the White House.

Yeah, as Watergate closed around him and he lost access to people like Haldeman, his paranoia and self-pity sent him deep into the bottle. And he wasn't a fun and happy drunk, but a fucking bleak asshole. For an intelligent man with remarkable perseverance and force of will, he was one big cancer inside.

I can and I can't see Nixon has phsyically abusive. To the former, he was a nasty piece of shit and especially belligerent when drunk. To the latter, he conducted himself in a way that made the physical so alien that him focusing his rage with his fists seems strange to me. But the prevalence of the stories tells me the needle points to him being a domestic abuser. What a hideous id monster he was.

I understand those sorts of thoughts are hard to imagine but people in private are capable of anything, I had real trouble understanding boring old John Major Conservative leader getting it on with Edwina Curry while in power, I don't want to give you images in your head or anything but!! Urg!, the hypocrisy is unbelievable, to me when I heard that I thought 'Really?'.

Sharp analysis. My one slight irritation, having nothing to do with the facts of the subject, is with the headline of the linked article. Is it time to address Nixon's alleged abuses? I mean... I guess? In the sense that we should address every instance of abuse? But it's not exactly like revealing Nixon was a colossal abuser piece of shit is going to be revelatory for anyone. It's set up like the article is breaking a taboo where none exists. Go ahead, address away.

Even more so considering John Major is the only person who has ever run away from the circus to work at a bank!
True story his dad Tom Major was a circus performer. He is also Major Tom from Bowie’s Space Odessy after Bowie saw his name on a circus poster in Brixton.

Now Way!, Major Tom!!, I did know the Circus one though, but I'd forgotten that, I can see him as a Bank manager but thought he was very starchy as Conservative leader, but best of a bad lot where Thatcher was concerned, did I just say that?!.

Apparently that is true Bowie saw Tom Major on a circus poster and famously used it as one of his characters.
