History does repeat itself

     45 years ago I got up in Amsterdam Holland to go get my copy of the International Herald Tribune to read what the latest news was on the Watergate affair.  What had flown under the radar was the growing scandal involving Vice President Spiro Agnew, Maryland's gift to our Nation.  The headline blared "Agnew Resigns."
    Rachael Maddow has recently released a podcast examining the story of this resignation scandal that has so many parallels to our current situation with the corruption of the Trump administration.  Central to the Agnew defense was the attacking of the press and the Justice Department.  Sound familiar?  Here is a link to this fascinating podcast. 

     The fact that Donald Trump has held sixty-six rallies since being elected president but still hasn’t visited our troops in a combat zone tells you all you need to know about him. Word is that his bone spurs are acting up again.
