Bwog correspondent Brendan Ballou reports:

I think I just saw him in Morningside Park, wearing a black sweater and black sunglasses. It would make sense, since he’s probably starting his book tour, and I remember some scenes from The Professor of Desire take place in Morningside. Besides, if it isn’t him, someone can make an EXTREMELY pretentious reference to Operation Shylock about how there is an imitator trying to steal his identity.

Wow, I realize this email itself is pretty pretentious. Sorry.

Apology accepted, Brendan. As long as you don’t masturbate into chopped liver.
