Who? Richard Nixon, ex-president of the United States.
Why? I had just seen the teen/consipracy film 'Dick' with Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams. It's a spin on 'All The President's Men' in which two young girls are the Deep Throat supplying information to Woodward and Bernstein. It's a slow burning film, combining the subtle with the broad with a fantastic final shot almost worth the admission fee/rental charge. Also this photo seems to encapsulate Nixon's entire run in the White House in one image -- 'Why can I never get anything right?'
first appeared October 2001; finally
