The Village Voice’s blog interviews Moshe Billet, the ultra-good Samaritan who found the fancy shoe I first reported on, and about his efforts to find its owner. I knew about Craigslist, and the flyers which first caused me to e-mail him, but he even contacted two local police precincts. So far, New York’s Finest have come up empty.
Until this story became a “viral Internet sensation”, he had only heard from two people. One person e-mailing to say “Jesus, bless you”, and me, wondering if the whole thing was on the level.
Though Mr. Billet, who the Voice calls “charmingly pragmatic”, wouldn’t mind if the woman whose foot once graced the Louboutin, is pretty, between 23 & 27 years old, and Jewish, he is still hopeful that the the owner will turn up, regardless of age, marital status, or religious belief.
Tikkun olam, five toes at a time.
(And yes, the Voice credited me. Hear that Hutchinson, you putz?)
