The Miller roast

It's official. Judy Miller is a dead horse -- the latest beating is delivered by Nicholas Lemann, who reduces her to a drama queen in the New Yorker:


I hardly know Miller, but it says something about her that I remember clearly the first time we met. It was in the summer of 1976, just after I had moved to Washington; .. Miller, who was then a freelance writer on the verge of being hired by the Times, was not so much ideological as eager to let you know that she travelled in a world of international intrigue and important people—the sort of person who was always conducting hushed, urgent telephone conversations.
