Nixon archives move funded in Bush budget

The AP President Bush's budget plan would keep the Nixon Library on track as it converts from a private to a public facility that will house the ex-president's records.

Bush is asking for $10.6 million in 2007 for the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace in Yorba Linda, Calif., 30 miles southeast of Los Angeles. The money will help the National Archives and Records Administration build an addition to house Nixon's records - including, eventually, the Watergate tapes - and pay for staff and operations.


I do not relish spending my tax money on this, but I understand the need for it. Maybe somebody else's tax money (a coupla big fat oilmen??) could be spent?

I guess somebody could say the same thing about a library purchasing "Heather Has Two Mommies." Applying your criteria, perhaps a homsexual group could pay for it?

Sounds kind of silly, doesn't it?
