Washington Post on Nixons Not a crook speech
Washington Post, Sunday, November 18, 1973 Page
A01 Orlando, Fla, Nov. 17 -- Declaring that "I
am not a crook," President Nixon vigorously
defended his record in the Watergate case tonight
and said he had never profited from his public
service. "I have earned every cent. And in all
of my years of public life I have never
obstructed justice," Mr. Nixon said. "People
have got to know whether or not their President
is a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. I've earned
everything I've got."

Oil Crisis in the 1970s
US greatly dependent on non-remewable
energy 1870, 90 of Us energy came from
renewable sources--water, wood. 1970 more than
90 came from non-renewable fossil fuels. US
uses more than 1/3 of the worlds energy
resources 1973 - 1st oil crisis OPEC, Oct.
1973--announces embargo of oil to nations
supporting Israel Soon lines blocks long form
at gas stations 1979 - 2nd oil crisis By 1979,

Ronald Reagans radio address, 1983
There's a very famous, very moving photo of Chief
Petty Officer Jackson, tears streaming down his
face while he played "Going Home" on his
accordion as F. D. R.'s body was borne away by
train to Washington. Mr. Jackson once said that
as he began to play, "It seemed like every nail
and every pin in the world just stuck in me." Mr.
Jackson symbolized the grief of the Nation back
in 1945, and I just wanted his own family to know
the Nation hasn't forgotten their personal grief
today, 38 years later. As I'm sure Mr. Jackson's
family would tell you, in times of sorrow the
warmth and support of a family's ties are
especially important. I've spoken a great deal
about the strength and virtues of the American
family. I'd like to return to that topic today,
because the family will again be a top priority
as we head into the new yearfor the family is
still the basic unit of religious and moral
values that hold our society together.

Grandmaster Flash, The Message Lyrics
(e.fletcher, s.robinson, c.chase, m.glover
- Sugarhill records 82) Broken glass
everywhere People pissing on the stairs, you know
they just Dont care I cant take the smell, I cant
take the noise Got no money to move out, I guess
I got no choice Rats in the front room, roaches
in the back Junkies in the alley with a baseball
bat I tried to get away, but I couldnt get
far Cause the man with the tow-truck repossessed
my car Chorus Dont push me, cause Im close to
the edge Im trying not to loose my head Its like
a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder How I keep
from going under
