*Truthfully, who knows why Valerie Jarrett is smiling. But she does now reside in one of the nicest, priciest condo buildings in the city. I received at least one letter chiding me for giving out her and others’ addresses. “I think it is very irresponsible for you to do that,” this irritated (possibly former) reader wrote to me. “The Washington Post did a nice profile of the Smart, Beautiful and Connected Black Women in President O’Bama’s administration yesterday 3/18/09 and didn’t give any addresses. What you have done is inconsiderate, rude and rediculous.” Spelling and grammatical errors aside, the man’s letter makes a solid point. In the end though, I have to say: Newspapers and TV programs do it all the time. The Washington Post is no exception. Reliable Source has an entire regular feature devoted to reporting where famous people live and how much they paid to live there. And even if they don’t give out the exact address, they give out enough information for people to figure it out.
