Return with us now to the glory days of journalism!

They ran "All the President's Men" on cable few nights ago.

For all of you kids out there, the 1976 movie is the story of how two reporters brought down a crooked president.

And like all big stories, it had a Miami connection!

I've seen the movie a dozen times perhaps, but each time I view it is like the first time.

It still gives me goosebumps!

Robert Redford is impeccable as Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward hot on the trail of the Watergate conspirators.

Here's one of the great scenes in the movie where Woodward learns who Charles Colson is and where he also learns that one needs to have some knowledge of Spanish when calling the three-oh-five.

Oh, another note for all you kids out there. That thing that Woodward is talking into is called a dial telephone.
