49. I love that story!

I've been privileged to meet many really interesting and intelligent people on DU and I'm just so tickled today to get to know your background and read some of your stories.

You could write a book and perhaps you should. But meanwhile I hope you continue to grace us with your wit and your stories.

My Dad was an intelligence officer during the Vietnam war. He was stationed at the Pentagon during Watergate and would insist that we discuss the day's news at the dinner table each night. So I feel like I was steeped in Watergate lore but I had forgotten or maybe never even knew about Rosemary Woods.

Lucky you to have grown up in the heart of DC at a time when the best minds were shaping our views of the political scene.

And what a horror today must be for you. The intelligence and wit of your era has turned into the shit show that is trump.

God help us.

Keep the stories coming please I just love them.
