The only really strange thing is that the caller ID comes back as a not-in-service number: (212) 237-2546. I'm not quite certain how you do that...
Here's the transcription, best I figure out:
Caller: [garbled] Please leave a message. Peter Mosko was never a police officer. He was a homo to begin with. All right. Poisoning the minds of little students over at John Jay.Of course my wife's first thought was that it was one of my friends from Baltimore, but she noticed this sounded a little creepier. And his voice is strangely deep, which makes me think he's altering it.
Probably slobbers his bosses' knob for police [?].
But does he think that equal rights for gay because [garbled] can do it, too [unintelligable].
Oh, he just called back from a different (718) number. I answered and talked to him a bit. He insisted it's nothing personal (uh, really?).
He claims he read my book (doubtful) and implied he had been a student of mine (no way). But in the end said I wasn't such a bad teacher.
Seems like he's just your average run-of-the-mill racist (he calls himself a "realist") idiot who doesn't like liberals or professors at John Jay. Particularly those who say that "Black people are never wrong and all that liberal-biased bullshit." It seems he has a particular problem with me and one other professor mentioned by name at John Jay.
You know, I had a listed phone number as a cop in Baltimore (not many people knew this) and never got a strange or prank phone call. But write one lousy book...
