“Fatal Distraction” is probably the hardest article I’ve ever had to read. I don’t say that lightly. If you make it past the headline, through the stories, and all the way to the end – and if you’ve begun, then do read to the last line – and haven’t felt so much as a twinge, I don’t even know what to say to you.
I knew it was going to be terrible when they first published it and I heard what it was about, and I almost didn’t read it even now when I heard Gene Weingarten won the Pulitzer for it. But I’m glad I did.
