!! How Kaavya spent her $500K !!

Kaavya Viswanathan
Now that Harvard young-adult-lit plagiarist Kaavya Viswanathan has lost her book deal, does she get to keep her $500K advance? I would like to think not, but what if she already spent it? My buddies at the PEN15 Club have gotten the inside scoop on just how that money disappeared. My favorite:

$150 – Sex and the City DVDs and Ben & Jerry’s pints, for those lonely Friday nights when “I have a publishing deal” just didn’t impress the boys.

    A story of there Indian born Americans.
    Its organized practice to promote children not worth what they are promoted to! If you have two Indian born nerds having MD to practice and earn enough to promote an average child to work with promoters who manage one to success, what do you expect? BTW, everybody coming from India with 4 year college degrees, 2 years masters degree, 12 years of pre-college education and 4 years of non-academic work experience are still 24! I just want to add. It’s not 1+1=2. Its creativity we are talking about here. I hope I have been.
