Quote of the Day

"All great scandals occur twice, first as Tom Wolfe novels, then as real-life events that nightmarishly mimic them. And so after "I Am Charlotte Simmons," it was perhaps inevitable that Duke University would have to endure a mini-social explosion involving athletic thugs, resentful townies, nervous administrators, male predators, aggrieved professors, binge drinking and lust gone wild."
-David Brooks, on the Duke lacrosse scandal. Brooks may have copied his entire style as a writer from Wolfe, but it doesn't mean he's wrong. Posted by Stephen Silver at April 11, 2006 01:02 PM
