Jeffrey Gettleman First To Use NY Times Teleporter

with one comment

Today the New York Times runs two articles by the oft-bearded connoisseur of conflict-zones, Jeffrey Gettleman. One covers the precarious situation of Somalia’s Transitional Federal Government and one reports on the stalemated state of Mwai Kibaki and Raila Odinga’s new power-sharing initiative.

We all know that “Crazy G.” can pull off some wild stunts. I’ve always lauded him for being a great writer and reporter. But this latest effort takes the cake – just look at those datelines! Apparently, he spends the day in Mogadishu and Nairobi. Hypotheses?

I’ve ruled out the possibility of a body double – only the real Jeffrey could come up with those ledes. So, either the Times has a teleportation service that they’re not telling us about, or Crazy G. is just much crazier than I thought.
