    question at the end of the diary...about the EPA being established under Nixon...there was a huge grassroots movement that sprang up at that time in reaction to the extreme environmental degradation at the time (the California oil spills, the smog enveloping our cities, toxic waste dumping, etc), 1970 was the first Earth Day, it was a situation where SOMETHING had to be done. Also, Nixon may have been a dick, but he was no Ronald Reagan...he was evil, but not a wingnut.
