Truth in Memory

heroinson.jpgDisappointed by the Freygate scandal? Need a little good old-fashioned redemption? Try this: Here's a story that seems to hold as courageously as it can to its implied promise to try to get at the truth, the truth of what might actually have happened: Harvard and Heroin, by Seth Mnookin (from Slate).

But then how can we be sure? Is there a point at which we have to trust ourselves, as readers, as consumers, to have a sense of what is false in all that is being sold to us?

For corroboration, read the story from Wendy Mnookin's point of view: My Son, the Junkie.
