KIRKUS REVIEW

For those who missed out on the newspapers, these landmark thoughts and dialogues from 1968-9: ""How They Broke the News to Johnson"" (""`That you Lynda Bird? . . . No it's Walt. . . . Well, what in tarnation are you doing on your hands and knees at this hour?' ""); God Bless You Mrs. Robinson"" (a housewife friend of the same name who discovered something was up as her teenage son said, ""`All the guys want to meet you, Mon!' ""); ""Custer's Last Press Conference"" (""`. . . I would just like to refer you to these latest body counts.'""). From L.B.J. to ""old"" and ""new"" Nixons; from sex ed. to X movies; from students to smoking and the disreputable joys of mustaches; from Moscow to Paris to Vietnam--ten-minute-head-lined hilarities distilled from a potent grain of truth.
