KATHY SHAIDLE ON KITTY GENOVESE: THE GLOBAL WARMING OF CRIME:
At a 2005 Fordham University symposium on the case, Rosenthal declared:
I never said, nor did anybody on ‘The New York Times,’ or any reporter with a brain, say there were thirty-eight peering out of a window.
Presumably Rosenthal was hoping nobody in the room remembered or even knew that he’d eagerly penned a quickie book about the Genovese murder a few months after it happened, one that was titled…Thirty-Eight Witnesses.
Oh, please. Could I make something like that up? It’s not like I work for The New York Times.
Heh. Read the whole thing.
