Shorter Jayson Blair.

…not to mention a great deal more entertaining. Slate does the dirty work for you:

Page 225: A romantic evening for Jayson and his girlfriend Zuza: “We would spend late nights reading Emerson and Dostoyevsky, and talking about race relations and the immigrant experience.”

Page 228: Blair tells Zuza that he loves her. She responds by reciting “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufock.”

Page 282: Blair picks up a copy of David Remnick’s Lenin’s Tomb, then passes out for hours.

And so on.
