    Phew, for a second I thought you were talking about Jenna Jameson.

    He's on deep background.

    I know people have differing views on what he did and some of his other activities with the FBI, but a final farewell to one of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th Century.

    No disrespect intended, but there are a lot of RIPs on this board.

    I thought it really was a d_b, considering Linda Lovelace has been dead for years.....carry on.

    Without looking at a link or anything, wasn't he about 94 or 95? So at the least, he lived a long and interesting life.

    RIP, Mr. Felt.

    I guess now Woodward and Bernstein can reveal that he was Deep Throat.

    RIP.

    What surprised me most about that was hearing that Bernstein had never met him. I know Woodward had all of the communications but I would have thought that after all the shit was done going down that he would have met him at some point.

    Thanks for the link, Dan. Great story.
