A story we’ve been following closely–how could we not? she’s mishpucha–is the tale of Suzy Lee Weiss, a high school senior, who quite publicly and satirically grappled with her college rejections in the pages of the Wall Street Journal.
Her article spawned countless response pieces, some of which defended her and some of which accused her of being entitled. How would this all be resolved? On the Today Show, of course, where Suzy Lee Weiss appeared earlier this morning to defend her name.
If you haven’t been following the kerfuffle, this ought to catch you up.
