I can’t decide what’s tackier, Jonah Lehrer getting another book deal after publishing lie after lie after lie (and I’d point out something the NYT did not, and I believe Michael Monahan did: he didn’t just barf into a wastebasket and come clean; he defended and excused his lies for a long time) or Joan and Melissa Rivers wifeswapping with the Palins. Maybe I’ll flip a coin.
