    All day, people gathered in Lafayette Square. Unlike the protests, smoke-ins, etc. it was a very quiet, relaxed crowd. Some wag hired a Mayflower moving van to drive around and around Pennsylvania Av, East and West Executive and the Ellipse. When Nixon finally gave the speech, the crowd was like, "Wow. I can't believe we really got through that."

    A good day to live in Washington.

    I live under the bridge to the 21st Century.
