Observe this

Why are they always property developers? I have nothing much against property developers, but 25-year old property developers who splash $10m to buy newspapers. Come on it seems only fair to have something against that.

I'm not sure what they might be yet, but 25-year-old Jared Kushner who has just bought the politics and media weekly, the New York Observer, looks like he turned up as an intern after finishing graduate school and in some weird mix up he liked it so much he bought the paper.

By the way, the paper is best known as once being the home of Candace Bushell who penned her Sex and the City column that became a book and a TV series.

And the deal actually sounds like an episode of 'Sex and the City'. You know the one where she meets this preppy 25-year old and blahs on about how "sometimes a girl has just got to have a younger man, they have no hang-ups and they're really grateful" or something like that.

Later in the episode Carrie meets Jared's dad. Although that might be difficult as he's in prison with a rap sheet that is pure Hollywood.

Mr Charles Kushner, who gave his son a few multi-million dollar leg-ups to get going. Thanks dad.

Although quite what Jared is thinking now is anyone's guess. Charles Kushner was sentenced to two years in after pleading guilty to 18 counts of tax evasion, witness tampering and illegal campaign donations.

There's more. He also owned up to hiring a prostitute to seduce his brother-in-law and having a videotape of the event sent to his sister.

Who does that? Oh wait the guy who wants to get back at his sister for cooperating with a federal investigation into his business activities.

At this point in the relationship Carrie decides that really a young man is fine, but if she has to to have the family as well she's going to take a pass. Next!
