    • A few minutes after I finished reading Robert H. Bork's "Saving Justice: Watergate, the Saturday Night Massacre, and Other Adventures of a Solicitor General Oliver Stone's 1995 flick "Nixon" showed up on cable and we managed to watch the entire movie. It was a treat, as is every movie directed by Stone. While not always agreeing with Stone's idiosyncratic approach to movie making, I never fail to find insights available nowhere else.

    • Nice foreshadowing to our current Presidential crisis. Bork, with interesting purely legal comments at times, and other party-oriented jabs gives a pretty concise picture of the whole Saturday Night Massacre. Just something to think about.

    • A breezy and somewhat self-effacing look at Bork's role in the Watergate drama, and how actually staying the course (at least by those officials who weren't totally corrupt) was likely the best policy for ensuring national stability.


    • A short book of reminiscences, the last book Judge Bork ever wrote, provides an interesting slice of life back during the days of Watergate. Recommended for political history and legal students.
