I suspect that there were a lot of people who had acid flashbacks to the '60s and saw their worst nightmares come to life, when they saw the headline, "Nixon Declares State of Emergency."
Not only is it when so many people suspected of him wanting to do with his Enemies List and paranoia and lifetime of Red Baiting and Dirty Tricks against his opponents, but now to make matters far, FAR worse he's returned from the grave. It's not that we're not safe -- but no time is safe, since Richard Nixon can now apparently cross through the cosmos with no boundaries holding him back.
Happily, the story of course was not about Richard Nixon at all, but the governor of Missouri.
It may be the only fortunate news to come out of this whole disaster..
