This past Wednesday night, ace Weekly account executive Sarah Jewell was standing outside the Green Room on First Avenue, where her boyfriend works the door. As Peaches ("the tent's so big in your pants!") wailed away inside the neighboring Showbox, Jewell struck up a conversation with a lower-cased stranger, who, before revealing himself as upper-cased Stranger ad jockey Peter Kearns, attempted to shake Jewell down for some dirt about the Weekly's recent personnel changes. Jewell didn't take the bait, which didn't stop Stranger editor Dan Savage from trying to crack her via the e-mail exchange that appears here after the jump. For the record, Jewell's no mole.

it was great to meet you the other night at the showbox. like i said, i don't want you to get in any trouble, but if you ever want to pass along a little inside dope, we're always interested in knowing about what's going down on Western Ave.

That's very funny...seeing as how I'm pretty sure you were not the person I was talking to. As I recall, you are quite tall and self-titled Seattle's biggest fag. According to my recollection, the man I was speaking with was shorter, stockier, didn't really look like the photos I just googled of you, and definitely didn't seem like "Seattle's Biggest Fag."
That was a cute little parlor trick, but I will leave the mud slinging and insider dirt to our editorial departments.
