Wearable technology: Remember when a watch was a watch? Now if it does anything more than tell time, it is called a “wearable.” Here are some must-haves this holiday season.
GET OUT: Water-skiing Santa
Author Reading: Mark Feldstein Last month the L.A. Times discovered, through a FOIA request, that J. Edgar Hoover had at one point placed LAT reporter Jack Anderson on a black list. He was to be surveilled, but never acknowledged; snooped on, but never to have his queries answered. Hoover's correspondence revealed that he believed Anderson had been sent to Washington to bring him down. According to Mark Feldstein's "Poisoning the Press," Richard Nixon felt much the same way about Anderson. Later, so would Thomas Eagleton, George McGovern's running mate and the subject of a Jack Anderson hit piece that ended up being egregiously wrong. (Anderson accused Eagleton of profligate drunk driving, and later had to retract his claims.) According to Feldstein, Anderson's legacy is the ever more contentious relationship between media and politicians. Though depending on if its your man in the White House, that relationship sometimes appears a little too cozy. Dec. 28 at the National Portrait Gallery, Eighth and F streets Northwest.
