Senior news analyst NPR's Daniel Schorr remembers Sam Dash, the one-time Senate Watergate Counsel, and Archibald Cox, the special prosecutor who was fired by President Nixon after refusing to curtail the Watergate investigation. Both Dash and Cox died over the weekend. Schorr says it's a fitting weekend to remember them.
