H. R. "Bob" Haldeman

Once the toothpaste is out of the tube, it is awfully hard to get it back in.

Haldeman, who was Richard Nixon's chief of staff during the Watergate scandal and spent 18 months in prison after being convicted of obstruction of justice, died on this date in 1993.  Haldeman was a Christian Scientist who refused medical treatment during his final illness.  (Say what you will about Haldeman or Christian Science -- but that requires considerable moral courage.)
