Time Is Right for New Pentagon Papers

The story of the leak of the Pentagon Papers to The New York Times is famous, but how they got published as a book, with Mike Gravel's face on the jacket, reads like a John Grisham novel.

I heard a radio report Monday that Gravel is the first major-party (but not "major" himself) Presidential candidate to be in the SF Pride Parade. I was one of the few people who recognized his name when he passed by, and I only remembered that I thought he was heroic but couldn't remember for what!

Looking up stories on him this week I also discovered that he's a co-religionist. Although I'm not backing Gravel for President (I believe in working for the possible), I do think it's about time we have another Unitarian President!
