IMF Creep Staying At Fancy New York City Apartment Building
Dominique Strauss-Kahn is just too French and Fancy for normal jail with the other accused rapists. So he's staying at a New York building called "71 Broadway," wherever that is. The building manager sent out an email to the tenants, just to let them know there might be TV news reporters and other weirdos hanging around all the time. It's funny how the big concern isn't that there's an accused sex criminal in the building, but that there might be a "media presence" outside the lobby. The rich, they are different!
Thanks to "Occupant X" for sending this to our tips line:

We want to inform you that Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former IMF Director who is under indictment in New York, is currently staying at 71 Broadway. Mr. Strauss-Kahn is here as a guest of a leaseholder. We were not consulted before the leaseholder invited him in, but we have been assured that he will only be staying here until early next week.
We will have an increased staff presence in the building this weekend to ensure that the media, and the curious, are kept out of the building.
We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
We obviously aren't wealthy, but if we did live in such a swank Manhattan building, we wonder if the real concern would be "the curious" or "the (alleged) rapist" wandering around. Maybe this is only a concern of the housekeeping staff. Ewww. And here's a Wall Street Journal item on the same email, to prove it is real, at least by Rupert Murdoch journalism standards.
