One of the minor joys of visiting my family in Chicago is the daily delivery of the Chicago Tribune, particularly nice since I moved into temporary housing and discontinued my daily Dallas Morning News.
The Tribune is known for excellent investigative reporting, and the Christmas Day version didn't disappoint in the least. However, this wasn't the usual story about Chicago graft and corruption; the matters were of far greater import.
If that doesn't scare you enough, they threw in an aperitif and after-dinner mint.
And people wonder why I am so skeptical of the claims made by former agents that Valerie Plame was a "covert operative".
