        wouldn't you call Richard Nixon disgraced after Watergate?  He wasn't charged with a crime either.

        Stevens got off the hook because of prosecutorial misconduct, which Holder handled very well.

        I know hear he was killed; condolences to his family.  The whole "flying is the safest form of travel" needs some kind of perspective.  Maybe Nate could crunch the numbers with commercial vs. private small-plane travel.
