Joey Langston and John Dean

From what I read, many are saying what a good guy Joey Langston is. They say he has done a lot of good. They say in his sentencing coming up, the judge should be lenient. Not only because he is a good guy but because he has gone out of his way to help the prosecution in the conviction of those he worked with when he and Steve Balducci tried to bribe Judge Bobby DeLaughter.

I do not know what to make of this. But, it reminds me of my opinions of John Dean and the part he played in Watergate and the part he played bringing those he had worked with to justice. His efforts seemed opportunistic. He seemed to be the same person I had dinner with one night at Egil "Bud" Krogh's house in Chevy Chase. A person I thought of at the time as "just a bit too slick."

While it is good that we have such people concerned for justice following their own injustices. It seems just bit untoward (sleazy) . however, that they seem to step forward with relish in making themselves into "good guys" as they use the opportunity to bring down friends so as to gain easy and light sentences. Seems everything is relative. Seems everything is "for sale" so to speak.

As I recall, Bud Krogh asked to be sentenced before he cooperated with the prosecution. Now that's a person with good sense and good ethics.
