In Trump, Echoes of Nixon's Constitutional Crisis

The New Yorker

The public learned of the sabotage of Presidential election campaigns . . . of public money poured into the President's private property, of extortion and influence-peddling on a grand scale . . . . Millions of people at home and abroad believe that when the President called a nuclear alert he was toying with the survival of mankind in order to protect his own survival in office. . . . Meanwhile, the national life turns to farce. At the time that Schell was writing, the Watergate break-in was sixteen months in the past; Nixon wouldn't resign until nine months later, in August, 1974. We, meanwhile, are barely a hundred days into Donald Trump's Presidency. Who knows what the future will bring? In the meantime, you can read both of Schell's Comments, which have been newly unearthed from our archives, online: October 29 and November 12, 1973.

Boston Herald

Tom Brady's journey to each of his nine Super Bowls with the New England Patriots will be the subject of an ESPN series released next year. Entitled "The Man in the Arena: Tom Brady," the nine-episode series will include a look from Brady's perspective at the six NFL titles and three Super Bowl defeats he was a part of. It should be a rare opportunity for up-close revelations from the usually private quarterback who left New England this year after 20 seasons and now is with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The series will be produced by ESPN, 199 Productions (Brady's production company) and Gotham Chopra of Religion of Sports. "Through the series, we're defining the key moments and challenges that were seemingly insurmountable, but through hard work and perseverance, became career-defining triumphs, in both victory and defeat," Brady said.
