“The fact that he had seen Gray and he had talked to me after his lunch, that I remembered,” Mr. Phelps said. But he said it was not until Mr. Smith jogged his memory that he recalled what revelations had the young reporter so excited.

“My memory is fuzzy on the crucial point of what I did with the tape,” he wrote.

Yankees vs. Cowboys stuff? Who knows."

Unperturbed be a real Effwit.
