Nixon on Jews

Patricia Sullivan

In case anyone ever asks you why some people still have an anti-Nixon complex, here's a small reminder.

I'm writing about Harold Goldstein, a former Bureau of Labor Statistics man who died last week at the age of 93. (The obit will be in the paper and online in the next day or two). We get a lot of former government employees here in Washington, so it's nothing unusual, right? Except for the fact that an American president once personally attacked him and a colleague, seeing a Jewish cabal in their interpretation of unemployment statistics.
