Good Thing/Bad Thing #1

I'm trying to find balance in all things... my life... my politics... my finances... my art. To that end, I've decided to pick a person who has frustrated me in the past, and come up with one bad thing and one good thing that they've done or inspired.

This is not to say that there is only ONE good thing or ONE bad thing they've done or inspired. This series is about balance, so it's a one-to-one ratio.

Let's start with someone easy -- President Richard Milhous Nixon.

Bad thing: Bombed Cambodia after he said he wouldn't, then lied about it.

Good thing: Stopped the United States program to develop small pox and bubonic plague as virulent, drug-resistant biological weapons.
