“The Talk of the Town: Notes and Comments.” New Yorker, 20 May, 29–34. Symposium contribution. Thirty-four individuals comment on the tape recordings made by President Nixon, including Mailer, William Scranton, Joseph A. Califano, Arthur Schleslinger Jr., William Westmoreland, George Reedy and John Kenneth Galbraith. Mailer’s comment is the longest. He calls Nixon “the stubbornest man in America,” a man “obliged to drink the cup of his own excretions.” Rpt: 98.7. See 74.13.
