EULOGY FOR A PARKING LOT: "Deep Throat garage" an iconic site in journalism

Parking lots come and parking lots go - they are among the most forgettable features of any urban landscape.  But when a particular underground garage in Arlington, Virginia, falls to the wrecking ball in the not-too-distant future, more than a few of us will take note.

This particular garage played an outsized role in American journalism and American politics.  It is where Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward secretly met with "Deep Throat," the government source who helped him piece together the Watergate scandal. 

It was largely the reporting of Woodward, and his colleague Carl Bernstein, that put Watergate on the national radar - eventually leading to the 1974 resignation of President Richard Nixon.   Courtesy USA Today.
