New York Times’ Caller ID Phone Number

Interesting non-football related tidbit from Gregg Easterbrook’s weekly verbose football column on ESPN.

[T]he Times uses a phone number masking system — when a Times reporter rings you up for comment, your caller ID device reads: 111-111-1111. This makes it impossible for you to realize the Times is calling, and hence avoid the call, unless you know that 111-111-1111 is the New York Times’ secret code. (Well, now you do know.)

I think that number is better than Jenny’s.
