3. A postscript
Yep, they managed to keep a lid on it until after the election. I remember it well. It was the first time I voted. I was in my early 30s and our baby girl had just arrived. I decided it was time for me to at least ACT a little more grown up.

I had been fairly apolitical until then, but I thought Watergate was a big deal from the git go. I voted for McGovern. My friends mostly laughed at me and said it wasn't a big deal, "Aw...it's just a bunch of bullshit. The dems do the same thing. It's nothing."

I don't claim to be an astute political prognosticator, but I was sure as hell right that time.
I so hope I'm right this time too.

It was a time when you still thought the right would prevail because it was...just...right.
I don't feel that way any more.
