The Rest of the Story

At his website, Dan Baum compiles his complete Twittered account of his own rise and fall as a New Yorker reporter.

As a publicity stunt to generate buzz for Baum's new book on New Orleans, this was a pretty successful idea. As an insider's look into the world's best magazine, it's also fascinating. And even as a final flip of the bird (or .!.. as my brother-in-law's newly invented emoticon would have it) to David Remnick, it's remarkably evenhanded. I think Remnick comes out looking like a pretty decent guy.
