Do not insult the Washington Hilton in the presence of Mike Allen, or Politico’s star reporter will launch a multi-day crusade against you in his widely read morning tip sheet.Conan O’Brien made this mistake while emceeing the White House Corespondents Dinner. “You know, I was worried with the sequester that we would be forced to hold this event at less prestigious hotel than the DC Hilton — then I was told that’s not possible,” O’Brien said in a riff mocking the aging mid-century modern hotel in Washington’s Dupont Circle.Allen was not pleased.

The first episode, which aired last week, began during World War II at Bletchley Park, the center of British code-breaking, with four women cracking a code about German troop movements. The series picks up in 1952, with those women —and everyone else who worked at Bletchley Park— having signed the Official Secrets Act, forbidding them from disclosing their work during the war, a return to normalcy that has left some of them unfulfilled.Continue Reading… …
