"Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." (Mark Twain)

Feliz cinco de mayo, hombre! It's time to break out the tequila for a toast to "Our Man Goss". Maybe this is the beginning of the end (he said gleefully). War, bribery, lies, nothing got to anyone, but sex always sells, and the press knows that, so maybe we'll get some decent investigative reporting on this one.
I heard WaPo is printing a story tomorrow on Goss's links to Wade/Wilkes/Cunningham. Guess I'll be checking the WaPo site obsessively tomorrow.
Color me confused. Everyone on TV seems to be buying the line that the Goss resignation has been planned for weeks. No natural curiosity about the fact that it takes effect immediately, or that there is no replacement, or that he had a meeting scheduled this afternoon he didn’t show up for. Not to mention the fact that as Professor Foland pointed out in the comments, the White House would’ve probably sacrificed its collective left nut to avoid stepping on a drunk Kennedy story.
