Corresponding with a crook
Man accused of sending threats to celebrities
There have been several reports that linked this individual with Free Republic, under the posting name "Marc Costanza". Keith Olbermann shamelessly attempted to link this crook to conservative heads like Laura Ingraham, Michele Malkin and Ann Coulter. (The grounds? "Marc Constanza" has professed admiration for all three. Apparently, in Keith Olbermann's planet, that itself is enough to prosecute conservative icons such as Malkin or Ingraham.)
Getting to the point, during my weekly scouring of the internet to see what random site is bashing me this week, I found my name turned up on DailyKos, a stalwart haven for leftist bloggers. But it wasn't the 'merit' of my name that the DailyKos folk found noteworthy. It was a post by "Marc Costanza" to me in a thread I started.
I'm not sure how much of a distinction it is to claim to have corresponded with people of such notoriety. It's a little like finding out Scott Peterson or OJ Simpson once sent you a letter. (The difference being, this guy hasn't been tried yet.)
It's a testament to the fact that our globe is shrinking as communication grows and becomes more sophisticated.
