August 8, 1974

Congress acknowledged and responded to growing public anger.

Its response was bipartisan.

The political media investigated White House lawbreaking, lies, and cover-ups.

A president, reined-in if not apologetic, resigned.

A handful of people even went to jail.

The Constitution and the rule of law were mostly reaffirmed.

It was another world.
