The Weekend Desk Report

"Forty years after Richard Nixon resigned the presidency and 20 years after he died, history still has not caught up to the real man, believes Richard Duchossois, chairman of Arlington International racetrack," the Daily Herald reports.

"I just plain liked him," Duchossois said. "And I thought he was brilliant."

I wonder which of these infamous Nixon assessments Duchossois finds the brilliantest:

"Most Jews are disloyal . . . The Irish can't drink . . . The Italians, of course, just don't have their heads screwed on tight . . . "[Mexican Americans] steal; they're dishonest . . . [but] they do have a concept of family life. They don't live like a bunch of dogs, which the Negroes do live like."


"I think he got caught up in something he wished he hadn't," Duchossois said about Watergate.

Nixon: "Goddamn it, get in and get those files. Blow the safe and get them. The way I want that handled is . . . just to break in. Break in and take it out! You understand? . . . You are to break into the place, rifle the files, and bring them out . . . Just go in and take it! Go in around eight or nine o'clock. And clean it up."


"No, history hasn't been fair," Duchossois said. "He wasn't a dishonest man."

Nixon: "You don't know how to lie. If you can't lie, you'll never go anywhere."


Dick Duchossois, you are This Weekend's Worst Person in Illinois.
