Ice cream and ethics

Freelancer Kate Hahn wrote a wonderful piece for the Washington Post about her summer job during the Iran Contra Hearings.

My memories of being the same age are of the Watergate hearings, which were constantly playing on television at the Student Activity Center in college. Believe it or not, we packed into that place until it was standing room only, right out to the stairs. That was the early 70s for you: everyone was vitally concerned about the revealed duplicity in the Oval Office. Now we take it for granted.

I have nothing else to say--go read the excellent Post article.
