Dirty politics? See 'President's Men'
Mudslinging, dirty tricks ... not much new in that during a presidential election.
But if you want to see a fascinating account of the granddaddy of dirty campaigns, you might want to stop by the library at 1 p.m. Thursday when the Tarpon Springs Cinema Guild presents All The President's Men, starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman.
The movie, based on the book by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, details the scandalous 1972 presidential campaign, which eventually led to Richard Nixon's resignation.
The free program will be hosted by Sam and Cathy Tsoutsanis at the library, 138 E Lemon St. For information call (727) 943-4922.
