Slate:And are you adapting another work?

Jacobson:  No. We're adapting newspaper—basically newspaper stories.

Slate:Ah. A much vaster project.

Colón: Yes, it is. Poor Sidney.

Jacobson: Wait! Wait! Your turn will come.

Slate:Sid, when you were breaking down the commission report and trying to figure out which parts of it to include, what did you want to leave readers with?

Jacobson: Well, the important thing to me was their conclusions. We thought it was incredibly important to make this available in a more understandable package. Just the fact that so little has been done yet—to me, to both of us, it shows that not enough people have understood what was said.
