    A few minutes after I finished reading Robert H Bork s Saving Justice Watergate, the Saturday Night Massacre, and Other Adventures of a Solicitor General Oliver Stone s 1995 flick Nixon showed up on cable and we managed to watch the entire movie It was a treat, as is every movie directed by Stone While not always agreeing with Stone s idiosyncratic approach to movie making, I never fail to find insights available nowhere else There was archival footage of the red bearded Pittsburgh native Bork and I was reminded of his crucial role as the designated hit man who as acting attorney general fired special prosecutor Archibald Cox in 1973 during the Saturday Night Massacre segment of the Watergate incident.Bork, who died at age 85 on Dec 19, 2012, is one of my heroes, to the disgust of many of my liberal friends yes, I have a few His savaging by Sens Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden during the 1987 Supreme Court hearings made me recoil in disgust at members of my former party and confirmed my decision in 1980 to vote for a Republican presidential candidate Ronald W Reagan for the first time in my life When I learned that his memoir was due to be published this month by Encounter Books,...

    A breezy and somewhat self effacing look at Bork s role in the Watergate drama, and how actually staying the course at least by those officials who weren t totally corrupt was likely the best policy for ensuring national stability.
