Silly Article in Boston Magazine about Harvard and Noah Feldman

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."
