After reading the interviews Harriet had given to Time magazine and others I became curious about her employment as a magazine writer. The following is an inquiry I sent to Porthole Cruise magazine and their response:
Could you tell me if Harriet Klausner is a staff writer at Porthole Cruise magazine? If not, has she at any time in the past been on the writing staff?
Harriet Klausner is not a staff writer for Porthole Cruise Magazine. A few years ago, she wrote on a freelance basis a column that appeared regularly in the magazine. May I ask who you are and why you are inquiring?

And here is another Harriet appearance that I found while searching the Net. Notice that a woman from the Bronx misspells the name of the famous Groucho Marx:
Who is harriet klausner
First I am real and from The Bronx- since I am answering questions on a forum which I vowed to never do anymore after having been accused of everything short of 9-11- you guys owe me- why The in the Bronx?
Second since I am only 5' I do not believe anyone would declare me an amazon except on the net. As for being an artifact, not quite as I am a boomer and not yet ancient history
Third my husband agrees with Arrrqh that I am too soft on my scores- he is a statistician and claims my scoring is skewed to 4 and 5; though he also says my stop reading of books I hate by about 25 pages (and not bother to rate) causes some of the distortion- making my average invalid.
Fourth he says I average six books a day- easy to do when you suffer insomnia. I don't skim or use steroids- I have been tested for my speed and show strong retention (my only talent) - my reading scores in school for instance were in the higher percentile while I always finished first way ahead of anyone. As for pay, what pay? My best year in terms of income my husband figured out my hourly rate was in double figures with the decimal coming first.
Fifth my husband was quite good at palm reading, a technique he learned to pick up girls while attending Hunter College an almost all girls’ school back when he went. As for saying you will marry me – he claimed that with a fortune cookie.
Thanks to Shard02 for her kind request
Paraphrasing Groucho Marks: Them that can’t, write a book; them that can’t write a book, critique a book.
