“Nixon would line up empty $300 bottles of wine, then take out “a funnel and a jug of Carlo Rossi and fill them up with wine to serve to the guests,” Smith said, laughing. He said he saw Nixon do this about 20 times. Nixon would wink at Smith as he watched guests ooh and ahh over the cheap stuff, thinking it was high grade. “

For some reason this pleases me. Maybe I should dislike Nixon for it, but instead I am amused.

I love it!

Reminds me of a friend who shared a big apartment with two other guys in college. They had a problem with flies. One day, when only he and one of his housemates were home he put a posterboard on the refrigerator with all three of their names on it, and boxes to check off how many flies each had nailed each day. He gave the two of them credit for multiple flies, and when the third guy came home he told him they had started a contest and that he was way behind. The third guy was really upset that they started without him, and proceeded to swat flies all day, while my friend sat back and watched.

That tidbit is what made me post the story. It's great if true!
