A Passing of Note ...

W. Mark Felt, the former FBI second-in-command who revealed himself as "Deep Throat" 30 years after he tipped off reporters to the Watergate scandal that toppled a president, has died. He was 95. Read the complete story from the AP here

Almost from the beginning, speculation over Deep Throat's identity was a popular topic ... I remember, back in the day, Mad Magazine suggesting it was Gerald Ford! More recently, there has been the added discussion of whether Felt was a hero or a traitor. Me? I think he was one of the good guys, engaged in what was rightly called a "struggle for honor in Washington."
