Is this a new piece? I feel like I've read this before - it's a good article, I just wonder if it recycles information that was publicized somewhere else?

I know somebody who once worked as a housekeeper for this very doctor, and she says he was a real jerk. If she sat down to rest after doing some strenuous task, his kids were trained to say "Don't you have anything to do?"
