The office of Independent Council Kenneth Starr held two more closed hearings in its investigation of President Clinton on Tuesday and refused to unseal the transcript of a July 28 hearing it also held in secret.

Starr said he might continue to close hearings if he thinks it necessary.

"There are matters that do not need to be discussed in public in ways that embarrasses or humiliates the government or the defense and particularly the court," he said.

No, that never happened, of course. But this just did.

I guess you're only entitled to save face when W. has personally given you a nickname.
