Sorry that he has passed.
At a Christmas party at our house years ago, I was a fly on the wall as
he was talking with John Markoff of the New York Times. He worked on
the Nixon missing 20 minutes of tape being erased. As I remember, his
theory was that it was a conversation with Howard Hughes. This was not
an official finding of the government however, and I think was informal.
