alliegirl22 I saw "All the President's Men" when I was 17 in my first-ever journalism class (a la Bowne.) I remember being fascinated -- and still am -- by the politics, corruption, and intense, dedicated and cut-throat reporting that it recounted. It was then when I think I started to truly understand all that journalism was capable of -- and Watergate has fascinated me ever since.

And tonight, on the eve of the 40th anniversary of President Nixon's resignation, I had the fortune of seeing Carl Bernstein speak on a Nixon-themed panel. What a great, full-circle way to wrap up "My DC Summer." What a wonderful time it's been.

Oh, and he told us that NPR is "a good place to be." We smiled.

alliegirl22 At the end of his internship last summer, my friend Tyler hand-wrote a letter to a future, to-be-determined NPR intern. The letter welcomed and congratulated the newest team member, and provided tips and pointers in order to help him or her get the most out of their summer. What I bet Tyler didn’t know was that this letter would end up on my desk (his old desk) a year later – three days ago.
I love the little reminders that show us just how small a world it is, and I’m so very excited to see what this summer – and the future – has in store. And thanks, Tyler, for tugging at all of my ‘Cuse heartstrings on Tuesday (and I’ll do my best to take advantage of every free food opportunity.)
