It's Pauline Kael on Line Two

How weird is this story? My old friend Kurt Andersen finds out that Details magazine, in its August issue, has published an article entitled "Dudes Who Dish" under his byline. He didn't write it, never was approached to do it, never had a single discussion with anyone from Details magazine about the piece.

The editor's note, or whatever it's called at the front of the magazine, even has a few pithy quotes from "Kurt" about the piece. So what happened? It's a great story for the dudes who dish.
