O…Kay.

Granted, it’s for a good cause, but it’s… peculiar.

…Brooklyn cab driver L.G. Khambache Sherpa hopes New Yorkers will join him in doing just that – crawling on hands and knees with him during his ongoing 15-mile, six-day”Crawl-a-thon” from Inwood to Ground Zero.

Sherpa says the pain is all worth it if he fulfills his goal: raising cash for tsunami victims in Asia and 9/11 emergency workers at Ground Zero – as well as to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first scaling of MountEverest.

“Hopefully, some people will come join this mission and crawl with me – not only physically, but spiritually also.”

“I thought he was weird,” said Alfredo Garcia, 63, of Inwood. “But he’s
doing it for a good cause. I like the idea.”

Be sure to check out the photo of him in his crawling costume…

Deep Throat Mystery Comes To A Head

Whoa. Deep Throat revealed!

A former FBI official says he was the source called “Deep Throat” who leaked secrets about President Nixon’s Watergate coverup to The Washington Post, Vanity Fair reported Tuesday.

W. Mark Felt, 91, who was second-in-command at the FBI in the early 1970s, kept the secret even from his family until 2002, when he confided to a friend that he had been Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward’s source, the magazine said.

Well, that’s one mystery down. For a non-Washington-insider/wonk like me, it’s a bit of a letdown, like in one of those serial killer movies where the killer is revealed, and it’s just… some guy. I know he was one of the principal Deep Throat suspects, but he’s not exactly one of the sexier names.

Now if we could only get a Deep Throat for Gannongate – although
they would almost certainly insist on a different nickname…
