Somebody (I won't name him here until I'm sure what's what) has allegedly come forward and outed himself as "Deep Throat," Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward's most famous anonymous source in the Watergate scandal.

I mention this for only one reason: he's the guy I suspected nearly thirty years ago, and settled on for my own amusement, well over a decade ago.* So I'm gonna feel mighty smart-assed if the story turns out to be true. ;)

Let's see how the story shakes out, then I may elaborate (a little).

* And have been pretty darn sure of since John Dean's essay identified the definitely-wrong guy...and virtually certain of since an inadvertent hint from Carl Bernstein in an interview three years ago. There, don't you feel obliquely informed?
