Jennifer '98 Lee

8lee.jpgJennifer 8. Lee is the New York Times comer known for her networking skills the New York Sun has gone so far as to suggest that Lee is the second coming of Katharine Graham. And though the comparison may be apposite, it's unlikely the legendary Washington Post editrix ever used Yahoo Groups to help report her stories.

While the Harvard98 Yahoo Group typically traffics in less-than-rousing political banter and questions about housing in Dallas, subscribers are occasionally met with queries from Jenny 8. herself.

Most recently Jenny inquired about people scared to eat fish because of mercury levels; it's fair to assume we can expect a Times article on that very topic in the near future.

Don't believe it? Well consider the following email sent to the Harvard98 group on April 12, 2003:

Subject: [harvard98] SARS: affected by sars in seattle (SF/LA)

this has to be one of the stranger requests i have made to this list

does anyone know of people in seattle (most likely with links to asia) who is thinking of/affected by SARS. that is (not in parallel structure), family there, school exchanges that were cancelled, business trips that have been cancelled, local tourist business that is down, quarantined etc.

and if not seattle, people in San Fran and Los Angeles would be good too.


And then treat yourself to her article in the New York Times four days later, In U.S., Fear Is Spreading Faster Than SARS, datelined April 16, 2003 and reported by Jennifer 8. Lee. From the article: Back in Seattle, though, concerns among co-workers led several employers to ask the participants to work from home

Still don't believe it? Well screw you.

This is not the first time Jenny 8.s Harvard cronies have assisted her. Wonkette has bravely exposed the shadowy cabal of former classmates who have helped make Jennifer 8. Lee the heir to D.C. royalty. The master's house continues to burn.

Posted in a Shallow fashion.
