What I’m Reading: All The President’s Men – 28 in a series – “…watch their own ideals disintegrate.”

September 27th, 2019

“But what it was like for young men and women to come to Washington because they believed in something and then to be inside and see how things worked and watch their own ideals disintegrate.
