Daisey Chain

Re Daisey:

I just listened to "The American Life" episode in which Ira Glass "interrogated" Daisey. He deserved to be humbled. His flaky analyses of theatrical "truths" are perhaps acceptable at beer bar displays, but it doesn't pass my standards as a professor of American Lit for thirty years (1952-82) and a cultural journalist for the rest of my writing life.

His subject was very important, his finagling with the truth disgraceful.
