"When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal."
This quote comes from Richard Nixon, in an interview he gave to David Frost. An interesting read, actually. The megalomania is astounding--and oh so reminiscent of another president I could name...
For the record, Nixon has never stood in front of me on line at the deli counter.
PS: Yes, you can tell I'm from New York/Long Island by the fact I say "on line" instead of "in line."
