Reeve is from Atlanta.
Reeve, BJ '05, earned degrees in magazine journalism and political science. From Atlanta, Ga., she received a certificate of merit for her article, "Behind the Bars." The article, which was printed in Vox, was part of a four-article series and examined the criminal justice system in the United States. Vox is an award-winning weekly city magazine that appears in the Missourian.
Upon graduation, Reeve interned at Time magazine and now works for the Center for Public Integrity in Washington, D.C.
And that helped put some context to some of Beauchamp's Myspace comments:
Where's Chimney Springs?
Southwest of Atlanta.
Chimney Springs was the fastest growing community in Atlanta from 1976 through the early 1980's.It seems that Beauchamp married Reeve earlier than they had planned (in Germany?). Braudra dropped a number of additional clues, by the way, indicating intimacy with Beauchamp.

i miss you.
Anyhoo, the connection between Reeve and Beauchamp does appear to explain TNR's choice of Scott Thomas as their intrepid war correspondent.
Now let's see if his stories check out or not.
Update: Oh, and I'd bet $20 that the quotation used by "a real spicy braudra"
"stuffing her shadow in her mouth as she goes"
was written by Scott Beauchamp.
Update: Confirmation, via Howard Kurtz (hat tip to Dean Barnett posting at HughHewitt.townhall.com):
The magazine's editor, Franklin Foer, disclosed in an interview that Beauchamp is married to a New Republic staffer, and that is "part of the reason why we found him to be a credible writer." Foer also said Beauchamp "has put himself in significant jeopardy" and "lost his lifeline to the rest of the world" because military officials have taken away his laptop, cellphone and e-mail privileges.

Update II, Correction: Whether because of a faulty map or a temporary inability to properly read a map, Chimney Springs is northwestern suburb of Atlanta rather than to the city's southwest as I had earlier reported.
Update III: Correction: Though the reasoning that led to the conclusion that "a real spicy braudra" was Elspeth Reeve was reasonable, it seems safe to conclude that it was wrong. That MySpace identity appears to belong to a different friend of Scott Beauchamp who, like E. Reeve, was from Atlanta and living in the Northeastern United States.
