Anderson's account wasn't from her own experiences. It was ripped from the pages of An Invisible Thread, a true story about "GIVING CHILDREN FREE FOOD AND HOW THAT IS THE BEST!" The anecdote—which occurred 25 years ago—involves a homeless child, Maurice, turning down not a government handout but an offer from a neighbor, Laura Schroff, to buy his lunch
What he doesn't seem to regret, however, is the fact that in stealing Maurice's story, he and Anderson used it to shit on everything he stands for today. They divorced it from the kindness he received and accepted. Their honesty problem isn't about attribution; it's about exploitation.
