Oh, my. Finally, it was David Geffen. Or was it? I've been waiting all these years to learn the truth behind the three most compelling mysteries of the last half-century: 1) Why did Daniel Ellsberg release the Pentagon Papers? 2) Who was Deep Throat? and 3) About whom was Carly Simon singing "You're So Vain"? Quakes in Haiti, quakes in Chile, depression in the United States, health care in turmoil, unemployment and foreclosures escalating, European countries going bankrupt, AIDS still ravages Africa , hunger still ravages the planet and, now the third of the three biggest questions of the last half century is goes still unanswered. When will we be able to rest in peace? Please, Carly, for the sake of humanity, please tell us who it is!
