I found the New York Mag article to be interesting, but was surprised to see they left out the incident of Ms. Duncan's plagiarism at Slate. It was a rather public issue, and Slate had to print an apology. I can't imagine it did wonders for Ms Duncan's deteriorating mental health. http://www.slate.com/id/2138484/ -----

Stickler for detail: wow, thanks for pointing out the Slate story. I didn't know about it.

I think the NY mag piece was very poetic, if a little short on sourced quotes. I understand he had a great deal of trouble getting people to talk on the record. The Newsweek piece comes out this week.
