My old editor and onetime journalism professor Ron Suskind is making another round of waves with his new book The Way of the World, an exploration of the post-9/11 world that includes an explosive revelation: a White House-directed fake letter linking Saddam Hussein to Al Qaeda.
Not having read the book yet, I can't comment on its merits. But I will say that having worked with Ron for a couple of years way back when, he is one of the most conscientious journalists I have ever known. Here's wishing him well as he faces the inevitable slings and arrows.
