Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (provided he or she emails Marc Tracy at with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner was very complimentary–with caveats–about Liel Leibovitz’ piece on the appeal of sincerity—as exemplified in occasionally disgraced D.C. city councilmember (and former mayor) Marion Barry.

Point taken, councilmember. Mr. Barry will receive Robert Pinsky’s The Life of David, the tale of another flawed but beloved politician known for defending his home.

In Defense of Marion Brady
