Apparently, new research(and a Bob Novak column)indicates that Harry Truman may have known of the existance of Soviet spies Alger Hiss and Harry Dexter White about the same time Joe McCarthy made his Wheeling speech and well before the McCarthy hearings got going full force. Just something to think about.

Other fascinating anecdote from this article.

As a colonel in 1944, (Carter Clarke)was entrusted by Gen. George C. Marshall, Army chief of staff, to put on a civilian suit in wartime to visit New York governor Thomas E. Dewey, the Republican nominee for president, in a Tulsa, Oklahoma, hotel room on a confidential mission. Dewey had learned that decrypted Japanese communications should have alerted President Franklin D. Roosevelt to the Pearl Harbor attack and was about to make this a campaign issue. Clarke pleaded that the disclosure would reveal to the Japanese U.S. code-breaking progress. Dewey reluctantly agreed to keep silent, and FDR was elected to a fourth term.

OK, after the 2-day swing of regular being cheaper than E85 a couple days ago... Today at many local stations, regular was $1.99, diesel was $1.97. E85 now down to $1.49 BTW at Schnucks.
