Who the Hell is “A.W. Morgan”?

By Nicholas Stix

I tell ya, there’s nothing like working a beat for 20 years—the reporting of race and crime, race and crime in New York City, in particular—and then finding someone distilling that work in an article, without any reference to your work. You might as well write on the reporting of the Watergate scandal, without ever mentioning Woodward or Bernstein.

I can’t imagine who would green light, much less pay for that bit of business. Was it meant as a provocation?
