Shattered Glass
By Mike Rappaport

I recently caught this movie on HBO. The story of a New Republic writer who made up stories and was caught, remember, by the internet. Very interesting and enjoyable. The Glass story, especially as his lies were uncovered, seemed soemwhat reminiscent of the Michael Bellesiles fraud. The DVD, which I plan on renting, apparently has a 60 Minute interview with Glass (boy, who do you believe in that interview?).

Michael Kelly, who was killed last year in Iraq, has an important part in the movie. The film portrarys Kelly as a real class act, which he certainly seemed to be. How sad.
