Here. The reporter struck me as unusually dumb, and was fixated on the idea that "big egos" at Harvard Law School couldn't get along because they were "big egos." Although I repeatedly gave him alternative, and more plausible, explanations for why the school, until Dean Kagan, had been unable to do a lot of lateral hiring, he was not to be dissuaded, as the final product makes clear. Time to quote Karl Kraus: "No ideas and the ability to express them: that's a journalist."
