A Mensch No More? Greg Mortenson in Hot Water

60 Minutes alerted the world to Jon Krakauer's account of the ugly (alleged) truth about Greg Mortenson's bestselling book Three Cups of Tea. You can read Krakauer's piece, Three Cups of Deceit, here.

But no response to this has captured the ambivalence about these revelations better than Nicholas Kristof's New York Times Op-Ed.

What will our culture do with a person who has done good things but has perhaps gone about it in a way that's unsavory, unduly exaggerates his good work and rewards him unreasonably?
