Hallowed Eve in the Mayor's Office of Communications
By Luke Thomas
October 31, 2005
As part of an ongoing effort to find creative ways of avoiding
tough and hard-hitting questions from journalists, staff members
of the Mayor's Office of Communications are resorting to self-disguise.
Upon entering the flamboyantly staffed office today, communications
staff members scurried beneath desks only to emerge moments later
claiming foreign identities and unable to speak or understand
One staff member, wearing a cheap and tarty wig and $8 Parisian
sunglasses, went as far to claim he was a member of Sicily's legendary
La Cosa Nostra.
After several double-takes it became clear that the jet-black
don was none other than Communications Officer, Francisco Castillo,
who later claimed he had forgotten to remove the wig after a night
out on the town frequenting his favorite haunts the evening before.
