An interesting follow up on Feldman piece

Apparently, Noah Feldman knew before the article was published that the central personal anecdote of his piece, that Maimonides went so far as to crop him and his then-fiancee from his class reunion photo, was untrue. And so did the NYT. Rather, because the crowd would not all fit into the picture, the photographer took several shots, each excluding a different set of people. The photo run ultimately excluded other people beside Feldman and his then-fiancee.

More below the cut.
