Some of our very conservative friends & strangely enough some Liberals are getting worked up about Chevron Oil having wells in Angola & paying a royalty to the “Bad guys” the govt. of Angola while we’re helping Savimbi who is trying to oust the bad guys. The situation is not as simple as they make it out to be. Chevron owns the oil wells—indeed discovered them. If they shut off the royalties—Angola will expropriate the wells, get Soviets & Cubans to help run them & they’ll keep all the money. Better to pay the royaltys.

I dropped by some of the print media editors & took some Q’s. re the things I’ll talk about tonite in the St. of the Union address.

I phoned Widow McNair—her husband the Astronaut had done a musical tape recorded in space. It was something to do with loving our fellow man. She has wanted it played as a message from him. I was able to tell her it was part of the memorial service this morning at the Air & Space Museum. Some desk work & then upstairs to wait for the St. of the U. speech. Dr. Dick & family plus Maureen will be here for it.
