Many of you expressed strong opinions about "Deep Throat" Mark Felt. Some excerpts from your e-mails:
Lorraine Bowden, Auburn, WA: "I find Mark Felt to be a hero. Who knows what the USA would have come to if Nixon and his men were not caught."
Jack Kincade, Mason, OH: "Felt is an informer. No lower form of life exists and now, like Judas, he wants his thirty pieces of silver."
Bob Zimmerman, Lafayette, CA: "Felt did this country a massive favor. He brought down a despicable administration that included Charles Colson. And since when do the guilty get to judge the courageous?"
Carol Miller, Jensen Beach, FL: "Bill, I think the discussion between you and Colson was right on. Felt did the right thing for the wrong reasons in the wrong way. Very little to be proud of there."
Toby DeBerry, Danbury, TX: "If Felt is a hero, then Linda Tripp should be elevated to sainthood."
Gary Kastner, Pittsburgh, PA: "Felt acted the only way he could act. He protected his family and exposed some powerful men."
Dr. Duff Austin, Florence, AL: "What is the statute of limitations for treachery?"
