Why would anyone with this kind of flow want to hide his identity? Based on the clues provided -- New York, extreme manliness, a glimmer of beard -- we can only conclude that this is James Frey, who remains in hiding, fearful of showing anything besides deep remorse. We say: James, smackin' dat ass ain't no crime! OK, we'll concede that there are other possibilities including, obviously, Paul Krugman. Anyone we're missing?
