(Newser) – The Reliable Source column at the Washington Post has a gossipy piece about two people who don't usually show up in gossipy pieces. It says Laurene Powell Jobs, the 49-year-old widow of Steve, is in a "budding romance" with former DC Mayor Adrian Fenty, 42. The connection? Fenty now works for a venture capital firm co-founded by Marc Andreessen, and Andreessen's wife is friends with Powell Jobs. The romance started earlier this year, says the piece, but the two first met at an education conference in 2011. That next year, Fenty joined the board of a non-profit program founded by Powell Jobs called College Track that helps low-income students prep for college.
