FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION On the morning of Thursday, May 17, I was planning to go to Camp David, 15 miles from my Maryland home, to cover the G8 Summit. I had never even heard of Brett Kimberlin. Then Aaron Walker published his 28,000-word post, “How Brett Kimberlin Tried to Frame Me for a Crime” and, after skimming over it, I made an executive decision: “Screw the G8.” This story was more important.

One woman in Maryland has worked for years as a public [...]

The proposal would also force US corporations to notify shareholders [...]
