Thank you professor, finally we have an article on the disgraced president. It's a very important topic and as a historian you did a terrific job on it. Eh, I personally could never forgive Nixon for single-handedly snuffing the 60s youthful counterculture. Yi Zhe Wu 21:55, 29 July 2007 (CDT)
THANKS for the nice words. I believe the counterculture committed suicide on drugs & violence & hatredsRichard Jensen 23:36, 29 July 2007 (CDT)
No problem. But I do not know about violence and hatred of counterculture since what it did was promoting peace and flowers, and giving nice music. On drugs, I personally think that it was preciously Nixon's initiation of War on Drugs (maybe it should be included in the article?) that locked up all the hippies et al. which contributed to the end of 60s rebellion. Anyways I am only a student so I do not know too much about history of counterculture except for my love of the music. May you explain the "violence and hatred" (and maybe the relation to drugs) a bit, either here or in email? Thank you very much! Yi Zhe Wu 17:36, 30 July 2007 (CDT)
one famous case of violence was a group called "Weathermen" that went underground and started bank robberies, explosions...others did kidnappings and killings. Many moved into hard drugs and dissolved. Richard Jensen 19:58, 30 July 2007 (CDT)
