More 'Deep Throat'

The WP this morning has another follow-up on the case of 'Deep Throat'...

Watergate and the Two Lives of 'Deep Throat' [WP, 6.20.2005, registration required]

Just in case you missed Federal Computer Week's workforce columnist Judy Welles' column on this subject, I would recommend it... lest anybody think that becoming a whistleblower is such an easy thing to do.
