1/20/1969: Richard M. Nixon takes office as President of the United States.

        There was Tricky Dick, our President,
        He was elected in that year.
        He could trick 'em high, he could trick 'em low,
        He could trick 'em far and near.
        Until the night he turned a trick,
        In the halls of Watergate,
        And from then on all his tricks were gone,
        From the days of '68.

                "The Days of '68," Cybersong, collectively written on rec.music.folk.
                [thanx Steve Suffet]

ALSO:
1/20/1969: Spiro "Ted" Agnew was sworn in as Vice President of the United States.
An apt office, since vice was a specialty of his.

Tom Paxton wrote a piece praising the accomplishments of Spiro Agnew.

In its entirety:

        I'll sing of Spiro Agnew
        And all the things he's done.........

                 [thanx Ada Prill]
