Robert Novak's syndicated column revealing her covert identity pretty much ruined Valerie Plame-Wilson's two-decade career as a CIA operative. But rather than crying in her drink, she and her retired ambassador husband used the incident to challenge the Bush administration's abuse of intelligence. Then, she wrote a New York Times best-selling memoir, Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House. Plame-Wilson discusses her experiences at USF this week. Tues., Feb. 12, 7 p.m., Sun Dome Corral, 4202 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa, $8 general/$3 USF faculty, staff and alumni (free for USF students with I.D.), uls.usf.edu.
