NY Times on Westport: Despite

NY Times on Westport:  Despite Snub, Sympathy for StewartӔ
Todays New York Times joins the national mediaҒs scrutiny of Westport and its relationship with its most famous possible-prisoner-to-be, Martha Stewart.

In a Westport Journal,Ӕ the second in the newspaper in less than a month (the other was about tax “gadfly” Michael Gilbertie), reporter Paul von Zielbauer sums up the Westport reaction this way:

Here in the town she once publicly snubbed, and where people later signed a public letter of good riddance, the freshly indicted Martha Stewart has become an object more of sympathy than derision.”

The account mentioned StewartӒs now-famous New York Times Magazine article three years ago in which she announced she was leaving Westport (but didnt) and said many Westporters had pointed out that unlike Paul Newman, Phil Donahue and several of the town’s other celebrity residents, Stewart ғnever seemed interested in reaching out to her own community.

It added, ԓBut among the latte and Land Rover crowd populating Westport’s fashionable Main Street shopping district over the weekend, the dominant feeling was that Ms. Stewart who was charged on Wednesday with conspiracy, obstruction of justice and securities fraud ח is getting a raw deal.
