Silly me, I thought the blimps were part of the renewed search for Sugar.
Also, Lady Gaga.

@2:30 PM Real classy mocking someone's stolen pet.
Sugar isn't sacred, but it is delicious (and addictive).
New album promotion for Blimp Bizkit?
Agreed. The joke about someone's stolen dog is pretty disgusting.

A joke about a stolen dog is hardly disgusting. Perhaps it's "too soon" for some, but "disgusting" is going a bit overboard.
If that was your dog, or kid, you wouldn't think so.
a "journalist" and her editor scoping the nabe trying to do another exposé. they're running out of stories to over there.
Like many others, I got caught up in the case of Sugar first as it appeared here on EV Grieve and then on local media. The story, fueled (and this is not a negative term) by social media and by a large reward for information on Sugar, reached a frenzy. The dog walker was accused of various crimes, people were threatened with having their servers seized and examined for hidden information. I think I've gotten the gist of what was happening. All of this went way beyond a community's concern for a lost pet (normally posted signs, etc). In part this was because Sugar's companions were media savvy people. The involvement by members of the East Village community was gratifying. But the vitriol against people, threats against the civil rights of people thought to be withholding information was unnerving. The debate of concern for a beloved pet vs homeless members of the EV community became a threat. In the end the story took on a life of its own. But there was always an underlying feeling that someone was manipulating a story--but for what purpose? The dog walker was accused of selling Sugar for drugs? (Not proven). The buyer of Sugar was accused of running a dog fighting operation (no proof, no story there). But still this blog was inundated with levels of information that strained credulity. I can understand Anon posters sarcasm as a reminder of not getting too carried away with postings.
If that was my dog I wouldn't care. A kid would be a completely different story. I love my pets, and animals in general, but pets don't equal kids in my universe, nor in most people's universe. One might have an emotional dependency on an animal, and that's all well and good, but to compare them to someone's kid is foolish, and I have yet to meet someone with a support animal who would argue otherwise.
Anon 9:34: "But still this blog was inundated with levels of information that strained credulity." Yeah, 'cause it's a blog, not a media outlet that has to fact-check it's sources. Comments on a blog do not equal, nor do they need to equal a newsource with "credulity". Boy, you'd think that would be understood by now.
@ 4:59 PMI think you've just furthered Anon 9:34s larger point.
