Hey, did you read:
• Marc Fisher’s New Yorker story on Robert Berman, a former teacher at New York City’s prestigious Horace Mann School who is accused of molesting and brainwashing numerous students in the 1970s? —Tal Rosenberg
• That in another sign that reality has become satire, the $60,000 IRS Star Trek parody cum training video was released only after a FOIA request on the part of CBS? (And that the IRS’s video “When Will I Get My Refund?” still has more views?) —Kate Schmidt
