NEARLY TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS AGO TODAY…
Edition #37 (published on February 12, 1991) of the original printed edition of The Whistleblower (not the Newswire) was delivered to Persons of Consequence all over town. That Week’s “Really Big Story” was all about how “Pete Rose Got His Own Hall Of Fame.” The Top Ten List was the Top Ten Ways to George Bush would know it’s time to start a ground war, and a coalition between the DemocRATS and Charter Party.
There was a Real Editorial by Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane (before he became “Beloved”), more “Real Facts,” and a Nick Vehr fund-raising ad.
And we took “Cheap Shots” at Lee Etta Powell, Jerry Galvin, Robert Goering, and columnist Jane Fonda; and “Another Real Guest Editorial by Bunky Tadwell.”

And on Page Six, we featured “our Official Whistleblower Crisis in the Gulf Scorecard.
