The truth about Watergate's Deep Throat

SELF-GLORIFYING: Woodward and Bernsteins All the Presidents Men.
  • 'SELF-GLORIFYING': Woodward and Bernstein's "All the President's Men."
Good review from Glenn Garvin of the Miami Herald of a new book about Mark Felt, the FBI official who was Deep Throat to Woodward and Bernstein.

Rewrite the movie and popular scripts about the triumph of journalism through a noble public servant, Garvin suggests. Felt had an ulterior motive (to head the FBI), leaked things that were inaccurate and sometimes "maliciously false" and didn't reveal dark FBI secrets that should have been exposed.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
