I have been a Watergate junkie since I saw Fred Emery's excellent BBC documentary on the subject, and - shortly after - "All the President's Men". I watched the latter in the common TV-room of my dorm in St. Andrews University and was so into the movie I really hated walking back to my room through the dark hallways. I did not really expect G. Gordon Liddy to jump from the ladies to do me in, but something of the film's exquisite paranoia stuck even after the event. Since then I have been reading on/off stuff about the break-in: Emery's tie-in book, Woodstein original, Dean's memoirs... The whole episode in its sinister incompetency just gets me.
And now we finally know who the guy in the garage was: FBI's number two man, Mark
Feldt Felt. He came out of the closet in Vanity Fair, and now everybody has an opinion from Bill to Bernstein's ex wife. But I have to say, that even though Blogistan is a good substitute, it is still not quite the same as being able to channel-hop between between news channels in feeding frenzy. Thank goodness you can get the most important one online: the Daily Show's take can be seen here, just scroll down a bit.
