It's a relief to find out from a source unconnected to Karl Rove about a person's secret identity as a spy. The news du jour is that Julia Child, the famous cookbook author, not only knew how to make a bechamel sauce, but was sleuthing for the agency that was to become the CIA.
The woman must have had tremendous time management capabilities. Did she go undercover while a chicken was marinating? Did she always make it back in time to stir her sauce? Did she ever use her sleuthing skills to steal a cassoulet recipe from Craig Clairbourne?
Will this inspire other secret agents to write books? "Beauty Tips by Valerie Plame?"
