Best NYU Law Class of 2006 Alumni News

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.

Don't you know that blogs are going out of style?
I'm just ahead of the trend, as usual.

i hate annonymous slammers.

Anyway, so he bought the paper with his own money, money he earned while an undergrad at Hahvad? He earned it by BUYING and selling several res.buildings in Cambridge, right? Well besides the financial backing from family members and other investors, for him to profit millions wouldn't he have had to put up hefty sums of his own original money? Hefty. Where did he get all those personal funds? He must have saved up every penny while working 60hrs a week at mcdonalds while going to high school. Independently wealtyh? Come on!
