I saw an article referenced on the Wall Street Journal's webpage and found the analysis to be interesting (but that may be because I am a dork). Basically, they use the frequency each columnist uses specific, unique words and then apply that to individual columns to see if they can determine the author of the different columns.

I think the most interesting part was the list of the top words and adjectives/adverbs used by each author.

There IS precedent in Twist filing the suit under grounds of libel, as all his lawyers would have to do would be establish that McFarlane knew of him (McFarlane is a huge sports fan, a fact attested to by his gigantic collection of sports crap)
