A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Deep Throat

Is deep sixed.

Mark Felt, the man who met with Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein to tip them off to Richard Nixon's criminal misdeeds, has died.

Felt spent thirty years convinced he had betrayed the FBI. It was his family that eventually convinced him he was a hero.

He was a man who stayed true to the values and principles of his office and his nation, and who questioned for decades whether he'd made the right decision.

He was a hero. And the terrible shame of the Bush years is that we have not yet seen his like again.

Sorry to hear this. We've needed a deep throat for the last eight years. Or maybe sixteen. I'm an equal opportunity skeptic of government.
