Tucked away in the middle of this Washingtonian profile of New Yorker scribe Malcolm Gladwell (who is wrong on Enron, according to various sources) is this anecdote from Slate editor/former roommate Jake Weisberg:
Gladwell and Weisberg acquired a Ping-Pong table that consumed most of the living room, and they became fiercely competitive. In 1985, they had what Weisberg believes might have been the first '70s party, complete with disco shirts from Goodwill. He thinks Gladwell wore an Afro wig.Wow, not only the first '70s party, but the genesis of a lifetime love of vertical coiffure. That must have been some shindig.
