From this week’s New York Observer (don’t even think about it if you have a slow connection):
A Brooklyn resident reported that while he was making a right turn onto Park Avenue from 68th Street at 2:14 PM, his car was struck by a black BMW bearing diplomatic plates. The complainant said that when he suggested that they exchange insurance information, the Beemer’s driver got out of his vehicle, pushed him and stated, “Get the fuck out of here. I do not want to give you any papers. You are inferior to me. I am a diplomat.”
The guy got the license plate number, sure enough the car was traced to a consulate, and guess which country? No, not France. Afghanistan.
