Trouble in Bloom County

Much has been written about highly accomplished people who regard themselves as impostors. That came to mind while reading this rather sad story about Berkeley Breathed, the cartoonist who created "Bloom County" and other strips. Note the last paragraph:

He looked down at “Bloom County: The Complete Library” with the same expression of disinterest. “This is an amazing book, amazing to see,” Breathed said, sounding anything but amazed. Then he delivered the droll punch line. “When you write about it you should say, ‘This guy is a fraud and a cheat.’ There’s your headline.”
