Today's video: 40 years ago, Nixon called it quits

 

This may not be a date that ranks with Dec. 7, 1941 or Sept. 11, 2001, but some people might remember where they were when President Nixon announced he was resigning.

Bonus: Here's how The Spokesman-Review reported it the next morning. Note that the only "non-Nixon" feature on the front page is the "Expo Today" lineup.
