"Mickey’s Monkey" was written and produced by Motown’s
main songwriting team of
Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and
Eddie Holland, who later went on to write two more hits for
the Miracles, which was unusual, as most Miracles songs
were composed by the group members themselves.

The first televised presidential debate took place in Chicago on September 26,
1960. Vice President Richard Nixon, recovering from the flu, looked pale and
sweaty. His Democratic opponent, Senator John F. Kennedy, had just come
from campaigning in California and looked tanned and vital.

Listeners to the radio broadcast thought Nixon won the debate, but television
viewers gave the win to Kennedy.

Two Giant Pandas were given to the United States as gifts by the government of
China following President Richard Nixon‘s visit in 1972. In return, the U.S. sent 
China a pair of musk oxen.The Pandas arrived at the National Zoo in Washington,
D.C.
at a ceremony attended by
First Lady Pat Nixon. During their time at the Zoo,
the pair had five cubs, but none of them survived past a few days.

Ling-Ling died suddenly from heart failure in December 1992, at which time she was
the longest-lived giant panda in captivity outside China. Hsing-Hsing would go on to
pass her record when he was euthanized by zookeepers in November 1999 at the
age of 28 due to painful kidney failure.
