    It seems so strange to realize this was 46 years ago. Such a long time ago, and yet, there is much we are still dealing with — that pandora’s box of special-interest influence that was unleashed during Watergate. I was a kid during all that, I didn’t really understand the details, but I could understand that it was important. More than a decade later, when I was old enough, I went into journalism and political science and moved to Washington, DC to work at Common Cause — which fought for the Watergate reforms. And, I’ve been fighting for good government ever since. I guess you could say that Watergate burglary, which I was too young to understand at the time, steered my life’s course. And, today, there’s even more work to be done. Thanks for the reminder …

      Thanks for your work on our behalf. I spent some time scheduling these daily posts 6 weeks, or so, in advance and it is interesting to see current events unfolding against those in history. I hope that we are learning from the past and don’t travel too far down that road today.
