I'd forget my head if it wasn't screwed on

Here is one of the 38 questions posed to prospective jurors for the Scooter Libby trial in the Valerie Plame leak case.

Is there anyone who believes that everyone's memory is like a tape recorder and therefore all individuals are able to remember exactly what they said and were told in the past?

I may not recall what my wife asked me to pick up from the store on a Tuesday night two years ago, but I am pretty sure I would remember with absolute clarity sitting down one afternoon with one or more of the persons who were in charge of the United States of America and discussing whether or not I should reveal to a news organization the actual name of a CIA agent intimately connected to the escalation of foreign war plans.

Unless of course, agents were outed so often that it is a long confusing blur of one treasonous act after another. Hey, one spy left out in the cold is just like any other. I understand.
