Snowden spills his guts....

I had forgotten that Snowden is ACTUALLY the name of the character in Catch-22.

That's a weird coincidence.

Where are the Snowdens of yesteryear?

Or maybe it's not a coincidence?  One thing I've learned in this industry is NOTHING happens in a vacuum.  There is always more to the story.

Jon Snow is a good guy in Game of Thrones, based on books by George R.R. Martin.

Snowden is a good guy in Catch-22, by Joseph Heller.

Ed Snowden is a good guy who leaked documents to the press about violations of civil liberties.

The three are unrelated except that they're all good guys.
