It should be easy to spot Steve Brill nowadays. He'll be eating lunch all by himself.

Why? He has a book out which dares to suggest that Homeland Security is working.

Whether you agree with that or not, it is remarkable that Brill is the man who wrote the book. Up until now he was probably best known for a nasty hit piece on Ken Starr in the debut issue of his now-failed magazine Brill's Content. But now
"He is a laughing stock!" mocked one network executive, who has been a friend of the self-described "lapsed-liberal" for more than 10 years.

Brill has been telling associates how arguments over the 700-page book have "nearly become violent."
This I've got to see.
