In the meantime, here's an item from the City Paper's City Desk Blog, relating to one of this week's stories about a controversial cop's promotion. It shows how sock puppetry is a little easier to pull off online than offline -- the article's author got a call from an enthusiastic, but anonymous supporter of the cop. Then, in a masterful bit of timing, the cop's lawyer calls him the next day. And it's the same person.
Pure genius, that.
