Anniversary of death of Richard Nixon, April 22nd 1994

I remember in the early 90s, when Nixon went to Moscow. He met with the Yeltsin government, and then with some former officials he knew from the Soviet era. He was criticized in the Moscow newspapers for doing the latter, and I marveled: Richard Nixon was lambasted in Pravda for hanging around with communists. I could hear the very wheel of history creak.
