The storyline has long been that Hart challenged the press to follow him around and, in the post-Watergate spirit of enterprising investigative journalism, the press did just that, fearlessly uncovering, well, er, what?

AmeriCorps, the nation's domestic national service program, celebrates its 20th anniversary. At a White House ceremony, and events nationwide -- new recruits will raise their right hand and take the AmeriCorps pledge "to get things done for America."
