About the same time her first-person account of testifying in the the Valerie Plame affair appeared Saturday on the New York Times website, along with a long takeout by the paper, Judith Miller was here in Fullerton. She appeared on stage at the California First Amendment Coalition assembly, immediately following a spirited defense of her position from her attorney, Floyd Abrams. In a group of mostly journalists, she did not receive a standing ovation or even much beyond a courteous welcome—about twenty seconds of polite applause coming and going. Mark Felt, the secret Watergate source, got a much bigger hand and he wasn't even there. Miller presented an award to his grandson. Miller left without answering questions about her case.
