    I remember it well.

    Also a functioning Congress.  I was in grad school at the time, and we had the hearings on the radio in the lab; I remember well the absolute ring of truth and conviction in John Dean's voice.

    Contrast with the abject failure of the Iran-Contra investigation, which should have ended in Ray-gun's impeachment.

    And it has gotten worse since then.

    The hungry judges soon the sentence sign, And wretches hang, that jurymen may dine.
