Burying the lead. Halfway down

Daniel Radosh

Burying the lead. Halfway down the AP report on the National Book Critics Circle awards is this passage: "Firefighters had protested the nomination of Langewiesche's book, which alleges firefighters looted Ground Zero after the Sept. 11 attacks. About 15 protesters, chanting 'Langewiesche is the looter,' stood in front of the building where the critics ceremony took place." Tim Carvell notes the significance of this: "Somewhere, someone has figured out how to pronounce 'Langewiesche.'"
