The questions you should be axsking(ebonics spelling) is why did VALERIE PLAME or her 'real' maiden name state that "...she (PLAME)wanted to marry rich and no just be a secretary at C.I.A. anymore"??? Mrs. WILSON and her husband seemed to enjoy 'outing' themselves in WHO'S WHO - don't-ch-think??? Oh sorry you are part of the NATIONAL ASSHOLE MEDIA - you don't or can't think!!!

Thanks for your thoughtful note.
Actually I'm not part of the National Asshole Media. Just the local asshole media.
