Love your mag. How do I send the money for my subscription?

The fact that I couldn't work this out makes me vaguely alarmed for your survival and I've just met you.

Subject: You OWE Len Garment a BIG Apology!!!


You Were Way out of Line With Your Scarcastic, Snide Remark About Chase Culeman-Beckman!!!

"Since Woodward and Bernstein have said that they will reveal the name of Deep Throat when he (or she) expires, it's becomes rather anticlimactic even before it begins. And Garment is fond of backtracking over the same evidence again and again, which makes the reading less of an adventure in truth and more of a trial for the long-suffering reviewer. To say it is an exercise in trivia is an understatement, especially when we learn at one point that the author was in serious correspondence with one Chase Culeman-Beckman, age eighteen, who presumably had hot inside information gleaned from the fact that he was at summer camp with Carl Bernstein's son --- and had learned the identity of DT through him."
