A few interesting reads from the past few days:
- Glamour, of all places, has an interview with Sara Ganim, a 24-year-old reporter for the Harrisburg paper who broke the Jerry Sandusky story and owned it for months. I see Pulitzers and book deals in her future.
- I'm sorry that the father of Maggie Gallagher's son abandoned her, but luckily she's been able to rebound by becoming a professional liar and hatemonger.
- Speaking of gay-bashing, this Rolling Stone piece made me pretty ashamed to be from Minnesota.
- And while we're still on the culture war, Philadelphia Weekly had a well-reported but pretty infuriating cover story last week on the fight to eliminate the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse claims in Pennsylvania. The people leading the charge against it are pretty distinguished these days by being on the wrong side of just about everything.
- I'm normally a fan of Alan Dershowitz, but really? A few incendiary tweets by Media Matters employees are going to be the 2012 version of Jeremiah Wright? I guess that's only true in the sense that this "scandal" won't prevent Obama from winning, either.
- My buddy Jordan Rockwell had Tucker Max, of all people, on his podcast last week.
