Carl Bernstein had never been in the sixth floor office space where the Watergate burglars broke into Democratic National Committee headquarters in June of 1972 - until Monday night, when the Washington Post
employed the famous building for a 40th anniversary celebration.
Bernstein joined his famous reporting pal, Bob Woodward, and retired Post editor Ben Bradlee for a night of reminiscing with former Watergate prosecutors, journalists and Senate investigators and a few former aides to President Richard Nixon. A hundred or so guests toured the scene of the crime, and sipped cocktails or enjoyed the view at an 11th floor reception.
"It's a lot easier to come into this building with valet parking," said former Nixon aide Egil "Bud" Krogh Jr., who ran the infamous "plumbers" unit.
