THE WRONG THROAT

Go look while the muckraking website Deep Throat Uncovered still opens with this carefully substantiated assertion:

After a four-year investigation, students at the University of Illinois have determined the identity of Deep Throat, the most elusive, anonymous news source in history: Fred Fielding, deputy counsel to former President Richard Nixon.
And go easy on these kids. They weren't the first college students to waste four years.

Superfrankenstein,

There was, is, and will always be only ONE Deep Throat, and her name is Linda Lovelace.

He may have brought down an administration. She brought down a generation.

You'll notice that while they say:

"I apologize that our project misidentified Fred Fielding as the most likely candidate for Deep Throat."

...they didn't actually take down any of their claims or research.

Fred Fielding and Mark Felt were the neck-and-neck lead candidates for years. It's no disgrace. It's like picking the Cardinals to have won the 2004 World Series.

I'm with you, Mike. But it was fun to go look at it before they posted the apology; they sounded so sure of themselves.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our lives, and I think it is safe to say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further advances, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.
