Have you been following the most recent WikiScandal? I don't see how you can have completely avoided it.

Hand wringing, back-pedaling, and finger pointing all join up in the great new dance of the body parts.

Thanks (once again) to Mike Daisey for drawing my attention to this Slate article by Jack Shafer. Worth a peek.

"...the history of scandal in America is the history of institutions and individuals routinely surpassing our darkest assumptions of their perfidy."

It's a messy world. Worth holding the mirror up to it once in a while, wouldn't you say?
