What About NIxon?
We passed the Bendix Diner on our way up to play golf on Saturday, and I mentioned to Brendan that Richard Nixon was a big, big fan of the pork roll and egg sandwiches at the Bendix Diner, where he would go after he played golf.
Truth be told, not being a New Jersey native I think it was unlikely that Nixon liked the pork roll sandwiches, but he did live in New Jersey and he did sometimes eat at the Bendix Diner. Since Brendan - like Nixon! - is not from New Jersey, he naively wondered why Nixon would spend his last larcenous years in suburban NJ.
- The Sopranos wasn't on TV at that time so you had to get your pork store information first hand and where better to do that than in the Garden State?
- Nixon liked the Jersey Shore, and that is only in New Jersey.
- He had friends a few exits down on the turnpike from the Mile Square City.
- He could take a bus quick to the Port Authority in NYC for Chinese food with his friend Henry the K.
New Jersey and Nixon: perfect together!
