A new magazine
If you have a Harvard connection, you probably received a free copy (and subscription offer) from 02138, a magazine by, for and about the rich, the powerful, the famous among Harvard's alumni (and not quite alumni; in order to include Bill Gates in the list of 100 most powerful Harvard alums, it appears they had to make an exception). Anyway, I skimmed through it and have two observations. They should have included George W. Bush on the list of most embarrassing Harvard alums (he has an MBA from the Business School); and the review of Jonathan Franzen's new book by Robert Polito (who is on the faculty of the Queens MFA Program, among other things) is excellent and the only article I read all the way through.
