Richard M. Nixon was admitted to a Miami area hospital today suffering from a viral infection and dehydration, and an aide said the 73-year-old former President was suffering from the flu. Eileen Marcus, a spokeswoman for the Miami Heart Institute, said Nixon "was admitted at 1:04 p.m., suffering from a viral infection and dehydration." She said Nixon's Miami area physician, Dr. Lewis Elias, had not reported immediately on the former President's condition.

Far from feeling betrayed, Greenberg should feel vindicated for his past support of President Nixon. Strange that he seems so excessively offended by the warm and enthusiastic reception given to Nixon by journalists, who previously vilified him, and the American public who seemingly deserted him. This change in attitude by critics is due, in my opinion, to the realization and subsequent appreciation of the monumental accomplishments attained...

America's love-hate relationship with Richard Nixon continues. Even a new stamp issued in his memory is enough to get people riled. The postage stamp commemorating the 37th President seems to be generating nearly as much controversy as Nixon did in life. Some 2.5 million of the stamps sold on the first day of issue--April 26--with lines throughout the day at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, Calif. But elsewhere sales have sometimes lagged, with some folks still holding a grudge and refusing to use the postage.

Siskel and Ebert may have given Oliver Stone's new picture "Nixon" two thumbs up, but Nixon's home county sure didn't. If comments from opening-day moviegoers Wednesday are any indication, the film biography of the 37th president will get about as much support in Orange County as George McGovern did in 1972. "I'm appalled," said Tom Debalski, 39, an Irvine resident who has respected some of the controversial director's previous work. "I think it's a travesty to the Nixon family.

Last month, a federal court ruled that the testimony Richard Nixon made to the Watergate grand jury in the summer of 1975 should be unsealed and released to the public. The decision has the potential to settle finally the question of whether the nation's 37th president was a criminal. The grand jury testimony, which Nixon gave in San Clemente, was the only time in history he was required by law to be honest about Watergate. And now we will know what he said. While Nixon was president he refused to testify at the trials of Watergate conspirators or before the Senate Select Committee investigating Watergate.

"If you prefer facts to fantasy, come to Yorba Linda." The words ran in the center of a paid ad in The Times on Dec. 24, under the headline "You Choose" and photographs of Anthony Hopkins as Richard Nixon and of the real-life former president and his wife. The captions, respectively, were "Oliver Stone's 'Commercial Fiction' " and "Three-Dimensional Reality." The purveyor of reality in this case was the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace, which has been waging a low-profile battle with filmmaker Oliver Stone over his take on the 37th president in "Nixon," released last month.

While I join the nation in mourning the death of Richard M. Nixon, I cannot forget the impact that his Administration had on my life. Twenty-one years ago, you published a list of 575 "enemies" of the White House that had been unearthed in the course of the Watergate investigation. My name was one of them. That list went from the Executive Office to the Internal Revenue Service with a suggestion that an IRS tax audit be performed on each listee's income tax return. This produced the first and only tax audit I ever experienced.

He swallowed his words saying, "We have done some things wrong in this Administration and the top man always takes the responsibility. . . ." He fought back tears talking about his father, who owned the "poorest lemon ranch in California," then sold it before they struck oil and became a grocer. "But he was a great man because he did his job. . . ." And when he mentioned his mother, whom he said no one would ever write a book about, his voice fell to a whisper. "Well, I guess all of you would say this about your mother"--he paused--"my mother was a saint.

A section of Imperial Highway in Anaheim could be renamed the Richard Nixon Parkway if Congress approves a rider on a major transportation spending bill. Rep. Gary Miller (R-Diamond Bar), who has been working with the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace in Yorba Linda on the name change idea, said Thursday the rider involves less than a mile of Imperial Highway from Orangethorpe Avenue to the Riverside Freeway.

Hers are concise notes, funny and practical; his are lengthy, flowery and eager. "Somehow on Tuesday there was something electric in the usually almost stifling air in Whittier," Richard Nixon wrote to Patricia Ryan in an undated letter written during their courtship. "And now I know. An Irish gypsy who radiates all that is happy and beautiful was there. " The letter and others exchanged between Nixon and the woman who would become his wife of 53 years will be on display at the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda during the next several months.
