Prologue

“We act like it can’t happen again, and it did a lot of stuff after, there was a lot of hew-hawing and passin’ laws and givin’ speeches but I, do you ask me, do I think we learned anything from it [Watergate]?

James Carville quote from Documentary,

“All The President’s Men Revisited,” aired April 21, 2013

“Mr. Chairman, I think this; I strongly believe that the Truth always emerges. I don’t know if it’ll be during these Hearings, I don’t know if it’ll be through the processes of history, but the Truth will out some day.”

John W. Dean III testimony from The Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities,

aka the Sam Ervin Senate Watergate Hearings, July 25-28, 1973

Remie: The story got me interested until the end. I like the two boys in Alexa's--Colton and Grayson who truly showed love and care for her. But if you are to make the story complicated, I suggest for a love triangle between them :). Anyway, I still enjoyed it. Keep on writing...
