Dear Washington Insiders. . .
This mass email plea, forwarded by an amused former classmate of the author, answers a question that's long haunted us: What do people learn in journalism school? Apparently, they learn how to hit the "send" button.
- Hi all,
Well, I am down here working at the [redacted], a gay and lesbian newspaper, and also on what could be an interesting story about gay advisors within the inner-circle of the Bush campaign. We hear there are lots of them, but I can't seem to find them (they're a bit like finding the Holy Grail). I'm wondering if any of you know of anyone on the campaign who is openly gay, or just gay, and willing to enlighten me. Either that, or another journalist who can confirm gay staffers.
Also, for the Washington insiders, does anyone know how to obtain the schedule for Bush's campaign manager, Ken Mehlman, or know of any upcoming events where he will speak? This is a tough story and I am getting a lot of pressure on it, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Hope everyone is well and happy.
