The Outlaw Ombud

I have big love for the fact that Dan Okrent’s book is titled “Public Editor #1”:

I didnít mention this in the book, but when I had my troubles with [business reporter David Cay] Johnston, one of the senior editors said to me, ďThere are three things you must understand about Johnston: Heís a Pulitzer Prize winner, heís a unique talent, and heís an asshole.Ē Iím convinced that at least two of those are correct.
