A Few Words on Deep Throat

This story has calmed down a little bit after a week, which is fine by me. A majority of the stories that have come out about the Watergate informant have been focused on whether the guy was a hero or not. Everything I have read about it has overlooked what I consider the most important issue. For decades the words Deep Throat have appeared in high school text books, causing giddy laughter from countless students across this great nation.

Let us remember the real importance of the Great American Mystery. Deep Throat provided precious escape from boring history lessons, escape that will most likely wane and disappear as new textbooks are printed and given to our children. Will they be able to forgive us?

I agree, Dave, and I wonder if other conspiracies were given provacative names would it not peak the interests of more people, especially disenfranchised, adolescent minds?

If the Savings and Loan Scandal was called the "S&M Scandal" I know I would've bothered to at least find out what it was really all about. The writers of our nation's history books should take note.

Some more suggestions:
US involvement in Cambodia...Jungle Fever
Iran-Contra Affair...Oiled-up Guns Affair
