Barbara Greenspun remembers 1986: Watergate’s lessons haven’t been forgotten

In Hank's column of Jan. 16, 1986, he recalls incidents surrounding Watergate. I remember accompanying Hank to Portland, Ore., where he approached Herb Klein and asked him questions pertaining to loans allegedly made to the president. I was not privy to the actual conversation, although I knew what the subject was.

At the time I was not aware of the devastating effects the entire Watergate episode would have on the presidency, or the part the Sun would play in the drama.

Watergate is history, but lessons learned from this critical time have not been forgotten.
