Can anyone remember the last time the Wash. Post was an advocate for the people and the truth rather than for the government and its self-serving prevarications? ---Oh yeah, almost 40 years ago, Watergate, when publisher "Donnie" Graham's mother Katherine ran the paper and stood up to Nixon. Somebody needs to remind "Donnie" that good journalists "comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable." The Donnie-run Post invariably afflicts the afflicted and comforts the comfortable.
