Oh Karlheinz! The Musical

Just to throw my voice upon the heap: Karlheinz Schreiber is a con artist, and last week’s column by Rick Salutin nailed his performance on the witness stand thus far. Watching him on TV has reminded me of my own recent run-in with a con artist. Schreiber’s rambling is deliberate; he is refusing to tell a straight narrative because he’s trying to suck us into something, and he’s going to make sure he has us all hooked before he coughs up anything of substance. If he pulls this off it’ll be a grand-scale con for the ages. Salutin says Eric Petersen might try to turn Schreiber into a one-man play, but I say make it a musical. No better way to immortalize a song and dance man.
