What does "often part of the 'establishment' mean?? That line ought to be removed.--Nate 19:14, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

needs references and citations[edit]

This is a great article; written very clearly and has a lot of information obviously taken from a lot of sources. I think some of these source should be cited, however. The article has External Links and Further Reading sections, but no direct reference to any of the listed material. I think this article should have a proper Notes or References section and make use of inline citations (either Harvard Style or footnotes). I will try to add some myself soon, but in the meantime, I have added the Unreferenced tag. Ukulele 18:58, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Born 12 May or 17 May?[edit]

There are many sources for each of these, but the majority seem to favour 17 May. If he was really born 12 May, where would "17 May" come from? But if he was really born 17 May, it's easy to see where "12 May" came from - a transposition from 1912. Not that that proves it. For now, I'm going to change it to 17 May, with a note that some sources give the other date. A birth certificate or other authoritative source would help, though. -- JackofOz (talk) 23:25, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Saturday Night Massacre[edit]

This article suggests Robert Bork felt the decision to fire Cox was unwise but the article linked above says "Though Bork believed Nixon's order to be valid and appropriate, he considered resigning to avoid being "perceived as a man who did the President's bidding to save my job." These seem to be different things to me Nil Einne (talk) 01:06, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
