I Want a Miata (My Contribution to Stephen Glass Being Back in the News)
The first sentence of the article that brought down journalistic Ponzi-schemer Stephen Glass is fine. The rest of it reads like it was written by a 12-year-old who learned to fabricate dialogue by watching Titanic:
Ian Restil, a 15-year-old computer hacker who looks like an even more adolescent version of Bill Gates, is throwing a tantrum. “I want more money. I want a Miata. I want a trip to Disney World. I want X-Man comic [book] number one. I want a lifetime subscription to Playboy, and throw in Penthouse. Show me the money! Show me the money!”
