I don't know why, but I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one that thought the CJR story was interesting. My favorite blog, Wizbang, refers to it here , focusing on the fact that this idiot duped the media. I figure just about anyone can dupe the media these days, as long as your scam supports their cause. Look at Michael Moore and his crappy movies, Dan Rather and his crappy fake documents; anyone can dupe the media.
I found the story interesting because the cat in question was such a screwball.
