Fun (possible) facts

Dave Kopel compares the number of Rocky and Post stories covering Obama's inauguration to other years, and finds that they went comparatively crazy.

Fine, fine. But what really caught my eye was this sentence in the last graf:
Arguably, race is so important that the first (noncloseted) biracial president deserves coverage that dwarfs that of previous presidents. . . .
Now, I've always maintained that Richard Nixon was a quadroon, but I wasn't aware of this, which is probably what Kopel is referring to.

Update: Al Stewart on poor Warren.
