Last night she reached the top of the food chain: an appearance on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”
The segment was not hilarious. It was harrowing — as the Staples graduate/Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist/MacArthur “genius” grant winner recounted her 2 kidnappings — but also very instructive.
Stewart called Lynsey’s new book — It’s What I Do — “fascinating and phenomenal.” He ended the segment with a shot of her after her wedding, and announced, “You have a life. And you are a person.”
She is indeed. Westport has long known that.
Now the world does too.
