Watergate tapes ready for the public Wednesday

The Watergate tapes -- the recordings that eventually brought down the Nixon presidency -- are ready for public listening. At 9 a.m. Eastern time Wednesday the National Archives will open up a 24-booth listening center, giving Americans on a first-come, first-served basis an opportunity to hear the voices of Richard Nixon and other White House insiders as they plotted to cover up the break-in at Democratic National Headquarters by the so-called White House plumbers unit.National Archives offials said Mr. Nixon's attorneys have decided against any last-minute objections to the tapes being played for the public. None of the 14 other persons whose voices are on them filed challenges.
