Click here for news about how humorist David Sedaris may have done more than exaggerate his supposedly nonfiction stories, including one about how an elementary school in Raleigh set up a program “cynically designed to identify and cure young homosexuals by erasing their lisps.”

Apparently it’s not true, and the New Republic published a story about it last week called “This American Lie: A midget guitar teacher, a Macy’s elf, and the truth about David Sedaris.” Not that The New Republic has always been so great on facts.
