Richard Nixon Appears Live at His Library

Come, children ...

Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum

Richard M. Nixon will be dug up from his Yorba Linda grave this summer to entertain schoolchildren. First lady Pat, too!

At least, that's what I assume is going on based on the "Meet the Presidents Live" announcement from the Nixon Foundation, the private boosters of the public, National Archives-run facility at 18001 Yorba Linda Blvd.

The foundation holds Dick-friendly events in the sprawling complex's replica of the White House East Room, which today at 10:30 a.m. features an appearance by President George Washington, who doesn't look very gamey based on this photo at least:

"Who wants to see dentures made from the teeth of slaves?"

A short talk by the father of our country will be followed by a Q&A, photo opportunities, coloring time, punch and cookies.

Other presidents and their Tuesday morning appearance dates as: Thomas Jefferson (July 8); Abraham Lincoln (July 15); Teddy Roosevelt (July 22); and Tricky Dicky (July 29). Pat Nixon has an Aug. 5 engagement.
