Do you? The thought makes me feel...wistful. It would be nice to think that this wasn't going to be Another Horrible Harlan Annecdote, that somehow this one would be different, this one wouldn't become just part of his image before the month is out, another piece of the persona he gets press out of.
I suppose only time will tell. But I keep hearing things that boil down to, "Yep, Harlan Ellison is a very nasty man. Why, one time he--" instead of, "Having assaulted a writer at the Hugos, Harlan Ellison will be asked to--" or "--will no longer be--" or "--is now being considered--"
I hope you're right.
