It was late on a Saturday night in early 1974.
The phone rang.
My father answered it.
"This is the White House calling. May we speak to Jeane Dixon?" asked the voice on the other end of the line.
"I'm sorry, Jeane Dixon's not at this number," my father responded.
Now, almost thirty-five years late, this strange event has been placed in its proper context in the annals of presidential freakishness by an MSN/MSNBC/Newsweek report [original link dead] that Richard Nixon did in fact receive frequent advice from psychic Jeane Dixon.
