Richard, You Broke My Mother's Heart

Richard Nixon was born 100 years ago today.  Here's a song I wrote about him.

I wrote this song, "The Misconduct of Public Men," with my brother Justin Fox Burks (who you probably know as The Chubby Vegetarian), back in 2006.  That's him singing.  We were in a band called The Hometown Nobodies, and we totally rocked.

  1. Love the pictures, love the song, love it all. The Hometown Nobodies is my favorite band (next to the Perfect Vessels...and the Beatles).

  2. One of the best things I've ever done with my time was to write songs with you for that year. It is to date one of my most proud accomplishments, bro!
