Me: Did you see that Deep Throat finally outed himself?
He: That bastard. They should shoot him.
Me: He’s 91.
He: Right between the eyes. I hope he’s happy with himself. Sunk a president. Caused years of turmoil. And most of the information he gave was wrong, but he kept stirring the pot because he carried a grudge.
Me: I never figured he’d come forward.
He: He was mad because he was passed over for a promotion.
Me: What promotion?
He: He was J. Edgar Hoover’s best girl.
He: So he thought he should take over when Hoover died. But Nixon picked someone outside the FBI.
Me: I can see how that might set a person off.
He: Nobody likes a snitch.
Me: Do you think this means the price of the All the President’s Men DVD will go up because there’ll be a buying frenzy at Tower today?
