I was five years old in ‘73. One of my earliest memories is sitting next to my dad as he peered into a little black and white television set, listening to the Watergate hearings. I remember two of the correspondents’ names - Terry Drinkwater and Roger Mudd - funny names perfectly constructed, it seems in retrospect, for a five year old to remember.
It is surreal for me to read about the events of those years - it must have seemed like the end of the world, in some respect. I’ve put together my thoughts on the similarities then and now, which you can read here: That Old Malaise: Inflation, the Middle East, and High Crimes in the Whitehouse
If you lived through it, what was it like? The politics? The inflation? How does it compare to today? How do you see the current situation shaking out? Let us know!
