There are the rare moments in one's life when one hears a piece of news that you know is going to be historic. The unmasking of Deep Throat is indeed such an occasion to savour.
I can't count the times I've seen All The President's Men and like everyone else (except for Ben Bradlee, Bernstein and Woodward) wondered who this mysterious individual really was and now, amazingly, the mystery has been solved. It's a man called W. Mark Felt.
I'm glad to report that Mr Felt, though blessed with a Jewish sounding surname is not an MOT (Member of the Tribe). He is of Irish extraction.
As pivotal as his role was, we can safely sit back in our seats and thank the good Lord that we didn't help to bring down this particular President (even a crook like Nixon). However, we can kvell in the fact that we have our own little fully blown (and I use the term advisedly) Deep Throater called Monica who literally, ahem, brought a later President to his knees.
So there you have it. The mystery is no more.
Now, let's find out who really killed JFK (and Please G-d, let's hope that he/she too is not one of ours. Such publicity, we don't need).
