Deep Throat Needs Lozenges


The recent acceptance by mark felt that he indeed is deep throat has laid to rest more than two decades of speculation on the identity of this figure who helped bloody Nixon’s big nose and eventually paved the way for his downfall.
Named so by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward the two Washington post reporters whose stories were based on information leaked to them by felt …the name deep throat sounds like a porn movie more than a historical figure.
While acres of newsprint and terabytes of internet data have been devoted to felt and proclaimed him as a hero of the true American breed, I would disagree.
Mark Felt did what he did not because of any reminders from his conscience but only to get even with Nixon who had ignored him for the top job at the FBI.
Calling a vindictive character like him a hero would be doing injustice to the already clichéd and misused word.

    fyi: the name “deep throat” was derived from the superhit porn flick that played in american theatres in the early ’70s.
