The Editorial Board of The Harvard Crimson is Pleased to Announce its Columnists for the Spring Term

Lauren E. Baer ’02 is a social studies concentrator in Dunster House and former associate editorial chair of The Crimson. In her fourth and final semester as a columnist, she will tear herself away from the mincing claws of her thesis to continue to creatively investigate injustice at Harvard, in America and abroad. Her column, “Writes and Wrongs,” appears on alternate Wednesdays.

Ross G. Douthat ’02, a history and literature concentrator in Quincy House, is beginning his fourth (and sadly, final) semester as a Crimson columnist. He plans to continue writing about politics, culture and the virtues of alcohol, and hopes that he entertains as often as he offends. His column will appear on alternate Mondays.

Robert J. Fenster ’03, an associate editorial chair of The Crimson, is a biology concentrator in Eliot House beginning his second semester as a columnist. He plans to pour the classic Harvard life cocktail: smooth and delicious sometimes, viscous and corrosive at others—but always topping it off with a twist of wit. His column will appear on alternate Thursdays.

Vasugi V. Ganeshananthan ’02, a former Crimson managing editor, is an English concentrator in Lowell House. She looks forward to analyzing the moves of the University administration and its effect on student life, after three-odd years of reporting on them. Her column will appear on alternate Wednesdays.

Kevin Hartnett ’03 is a social studies concentrator in Cabot House, making his first appearance on the pages of the Crimson. He hopes to identify the inexplicable and call it explanation. His column will appear on alternate Mondays.

Nader R. Hasan ’02 is a senior in Lowell House concentrating in Government. He is pleased to have a third chance to serve as the Crimson’s Foreign Affairs columnist. His column will appear on alternate Wednesdays.

Jordana R. Lewis ’02 is a history and literature concentrator living in Eliot House. Her column will run on alternate Thursdays, her favorite color is blue, her sign is Capricorn, her home is California and her hero is Henry Kissinger ’50.

Joyce K. McIntyre ’02, a former Crimson executive, is a history and literature concentrator in Kirkland House. “The ’Intyre Story” will dish all the dirt about the administrative squabbles, the ridiculous happenings, the needless bureaucracy, the maddening machinations, the silly student groups and the general insanity that is Harvard College. Readers should expect to be bombarded with juicy news tidbits about Harvard and clear, clever opinions on alternating Tuesdays.

Antoinette C. Nwandu ’02, a former FM executive, is an English concentrator in Cabot House. Her spastic column, “Glamourpuss,” about the ins and outs of everyone’s favorite girly magazine will continue to appear on alternate Mondays.

Meredith B. Osborn ’02, a social studies concentrator in Leverett House, is former deputy editorial chair of The Crimson. When she’s not reading crumbling 19th century labor newspapers in the sub-basement of Littauer for her thesis, she’s writing about contemporary inequalities at Harvard and beyond. In her column, “Harvard On My Mind” she attacks injustices from Mazar-e-Sharif to Mass Hall. Her column will run on alternate Fridays.

Alex F. Rubalcava ’02 still thinks people want to hear what he has to say about business and technology—please do not disabuse him of such ridiculous delusions. In this, his last semester at Harvard before returning to the sunny west, Alex will continue to explore the intersection of science and commerce while trying to make sense of all the stupid things CEOs do to try to get through a recession. In his last column, he will discover the Next Big Thing on the stock market and make us all rich, filthy rich. His column will run on alternate Wednesdays.

Stephen E. Sachs ’02, a returning columnist and history concentrator in Quincy House, is a former editorial chair of The Crimson. He is a student of both medieval history and modern technology, and has interned for the Democratic staff of the House Judiciary Committee. His column, which will appear on alternate Tuesdays, will focus on issues of law, politics and technological change.

Jason L. Steorts ’01-’03, a philosophy concentrator in Dunster House, distinguishes himself by sporting two class years instead of the usual (and boring) one. He will continue to examine the most contentious debates at Harvard and beyond, determining just who is in the right. His column, which is running for a second semester, will appear on alternate Fridays.
