So Vanity Fair asked Matt Robson, that Morgan Stanley intern in London who wrote a memo this summer on texting that got circulated pretty widely, to assemble his own list of the most influential/powerful people in the world, based on the mag's New Establishment compilation. The wee one's ranking was a mini version of the real thing, only throwing ten names out instead of 100 but we assumed there'd be some overlap, including but not limited to The Big Kahuna and her competition. Not so! Girlies got burned. Doesn't young Matthew know who they are?! Is he not familiar with their contributions?! What is the explanation here? These are the shlubbs Robson endorsed. Not really sure in what universe it makes sense that Bernanke would make the cut and Barnett would get overlooked. Has Benji ever blown a high-powered executive aboard a private plane? I submit he has not. (Robes also didn't think to correct the error VF made in overlooking Steve C on it's list this year, and he should know it's been noted at 72 Cummings Point Road.)
