This appears on the front page of the Washington Post's website today:
Maryland biotech entrepreneurs, who made waves by snatching up prime Georgetown real estate, finally reveal themselves to a curious public.
That's all well and good, though the "reveal" already happened - in the May issue of the Washingtonian, with the actual first and exclusive interview. I expect this kind of bluster from our principal competition - the Post and the Washingtonian are mano-a-mano competitors (daily with website) - and we all hype our stories to some extent, but this particular hype is a bit extreme. It reeks of sour grapes on the verge of fermentation. That said, the back and forth of the competition is probably healthy for a city which has so few publications still publishing.
This volly could be because Washingtonian called them out on their over-hyped Watergate 40th anniversary celebration, or because Washingtonian's editor, Garrett Graff, called out Sally Quinn on her memo to readers about her dismal social life.
I'm sure this won't be the last of it. Every time we beat them, they in turn want to beat us, and vice versa ... and so it has been in big-city journalism for decades and decades.
For now, the bottom line is that the owners of Evermay have given up their privacy for the near term and very well the long term, too.
