Night of the Living Dead

In chapter 6, Jon Ronson describes an interview he set up with Al Dunlap, a business man who was famous for running businesses into the ground and firing people right and left. Ronson visited Dunlap at his mansion and started asking him questions from Bob's psychopathic check list. Dunlap appeared to be a psychopath, but when Ronson asked him questions, he turned everything into a "leadership" quality, not that he was a psychopath. Ronson left unsatisfied with his discovery, he seemed to be confused himself as to whether or not Dunlap was a psychopath.
At this point in the reading, I started to thing"holy crap he is crazy!" I can't believe Ronson showed up at this guys house, who shows no remorse about any of his actions and asks him if he thinks he is a psychopath. Then I continued to read on, and in chapter 7, Ronson's friend (who is also a journalist) pointed out how crazy he is. Chapter 7 gave a little bit of insight into Ronson's home life, talking about his wife and what she thought of the whole thing. It was interesting that she was totally ok with him leaving for long periods of time. And the interview he had with Charlotte, man she is crazy too!
