RIP: Deep Throat

This is a true story.

When I was in 8th grade, I read and loved All the President’s Men. But I didn’t understand why Deep Throat was the name of a porn flick. I mean…I was very naive. I just didn’t get it at all. Not wise enough to know, but wise enough not to ask anyone, I wondered for years. One day, on a run, it came to me. “Oh!” I cried out loud. “What?” asked my Dad, who was running next to me. “Um…nothing. Nevermind.” Can you say “AWKWARD!”

Anyway, Deep Throat (W. Mark Felt) died yesterday. Some great coverage is on our site, and at our holiday party tonight, one of the teams for Jeopardy got to be named “Deep Throat,” without seeming inappropriate. (Although every time they were called on, I yelled, “Inappropriate!”

Another fun thing that happened at our party was my boss and I composed a new song, called, “I’ll Stumble for You.” Yes, my love for Stumble is now a running joke at the company. I couldn’t be cooler. You want to be me.

Oh, and we also danced to this video. (Don’t be ashamed to admit that you are very, very, very, very jealous):

  1. I’m a journalism major and I’ve always found this to be one the greatest moments of journalism in our nation’s history. I think he’s an American Hero of bringing down someone who should never have been president. And it’s sad that President Bush may be even WORSE than Nixon!
