Jared Kushner, who I sat behind in Prof. Chevigny's Evidence class my 2L year, just bought the New York Observer. Which is a newspaper. For under $10 million.
(The best part of the breaking newsreport: "Kushner is independently wealthy" Gee, you think?)
This reminds me of a story . . .
One morning I was showing some of the kids around me an up for sale town house that was blowing my mind and joked like "I've got to get my parents to get me this." Jared looked back, asked how much it was (The Answer: 6 or 7 million) and made a "that seems like a fair price" sort of nod with his face.
Not to be outdone, I'd like to announce that a major Project Runway fan-blog linked to me on Friday and I got hundreds upon hundreds of hits. So I've got that going for me.
