This week’s New York magazine (featuring the most arresting cover image they’ve run all year, Iwan Baan’s haunting shot of a Sandy-struck lower Manhattan shrouded in darkness) begins with responses from readers to last week’s story on the work-recycling scandal of Jonah Lehrer. Brian Platzer, of that august literary journalThe Rumpus, writes, “What did he do so bad?”

To which the only possible response is, “Me not know, Brian. Me just not know.”

    A Rumpus fact-checker hits pause on “Community” and fires off a quick email: “August? Whatevs. Dude, we publish all ten months of the year.”

    Lehrer not so bad if you think about it, and The Rumpus ever great.
