Edward Nixon, seen here in August 1972, at one time worked for the Republican campaign to reelect his brother to the White House. (UPI)

"I didn't really hear anything of this until I came down the mountain from the campsite and stopped in at a barbershop to get some hair cut off my head, and it was the talk of the town."

-- Ed Nixon, on how he found out older brother Richard had resigned the presidency. On C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" Sunday -- the 35th anniversary of the resignation -- Nixon, 79, said he was camping with his family in the Cascade Mountains but "expected something of this sort coming down the line, knowing that Dick would do the best thing for the country."
