Do you enjoy stories about high-flying phonies? Meet Kevin Halligen, the pretend British spy who charmed a network of Washington insiders into supporting his allegedly do-nothing consulting business and whose splashy wedding to a Commerce Department lawyer at Evermay estate was a total charade (he refused to sign a marriage license, and an actor posed as the officiant). An absorbing saga by our colleague Kevin Sullivan.

In other news: Barry Obama, the high school basketball years.
