Last night it was the police helicopter that woke us up. So we had a middle-of-the-night breakfast, caught up on the newspapers, and catalogued a few books. I just love the coverage on the great Harvard Business Review scandal. Subs cost well over a hundred smackera a year, but the really big bucks come from people ordering vanity offprints. I knew from the moment that the first inkling appeard in the WSJ--this was going to be b-i-g. The coverage in NYMag has been the meanest so far. According to that piece, the HBR editors spend a lot of their time "polishing" the illiterate submissions of corporate bigwigs. I love the trouble all this is causing for Jack Welch of GE (Mr. Hudson PCB), not to mention the spotlight on Suzy Wetlaufer.
