John Kerry: the missing years

Dean Barnett writes an interesting article about John Kerry's decision to execute a Form 180 (releasing some or all of his military records) only to the Boston Globe and the LA Times, two papers that seem to fit in comfortably with the MSM's Democratic profile. As part of a much longer analysis, Barnett has this to say:

So, in sum, here's where things stand: In order to settle long-standing and serious accusations, Senator Kerry and his campaign dealt exclusively with two partial newspapers. Those papers, in turn, refused to make completely public or transparent either the nature of the transaction or the precise contents of what they received.
Yup, that just about sums it up. I'll offer here good advice from about 80 years ago. Wilson Mizner, a playwright, wit and veteran of the Alaska Gold Rush (1897/1898) was one of those who knew everyone and did everything in the early days of the last century. He was also known for being remarkably open about the less savory events in his past. His philosophy in this regard? "They'll find out anyhow. There's something about a closet that makes a skeleton terribly restless."
