Lawyers Acting Like Lawyers: Sock Puppetry in Real Life

I had a meeting in DC this afternoon, and afterwards I stopped by the Hirshhorn and took a few pictures of the recent acquisitions. Of course, since I'm in a coffee shop right now and I forgot to bring a card reader (even though I specifically bought a couple of extra -- they're cheap -- so I would always have one around), that will have to wait.

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.
