One of the president's men

There's been a fair amount of vitriol from conservative talk show hosts and Republican legislators this week defaming Mark Felt for his "un-American" act of feeding information to Bob Woodward about the Watergate break-in. These proclamations are ridiculously ironic coming from the likes of comentator G. Gordon Liddy, who went to jail for his part in the scandal.

I first saw the film All the President's Men in 12th grade journalism class, and it made me proud, and it made me want to be a newspaperman. I highly recommend the book as well. My copy is so worn it's held together with rubberbands.

If you don't know much about this tide-turning point in United Sates history, you may want to pick up a copy of the book or the movie for yourself. It's a truly fascinating story of intrigue.

Meantime, here's this week's Washington Post story in which Woodward remembers first meeting Mark Felt, and how their relationship grew over the years.
