In honor of those whose social capital has fallen (and fallen fast), Gossip Guy has decided, for one week and one week only, to endeavor for a column that couldn’t possibly offend anyone. Yet, invariably, it will offend someone, so check back next week to find out whom.

Gossip Guy would like to use the remaining inches of the column to present the first annual Ruth C. Havel '05 Award, for best sense of humor in the face of overwhelming gossip and most deft use of plausible deniability, to none other than Ruth C. Havel '05 herself. In a week of heightened sensitivities on campus, Harvard’s very own master and commander, Havel, instead of getting mad, got revenge, as only she knows how. Ouch.
*Bonus Gossip Breaking News:
Monique E. Valley ’06 and Minnie S. Choi ’06 were so excited about the festivities surrounding Sex and the City that they decided to dress up as their favorite characters and reenact the show's heart-rending finale. They searched everywhere for the charming combination of sexual prowess and genuine warmth that the hunky males in SATC embody—but sadly, they couldn't find it anywhere at Harvard. The two decided to console themselves with a bottle of gin and the entire third season on DVD. Then they had sex.
