Man on the Street
Friday, May 28, 2004
There’s a certain kind of story that calls for a few words from “the man on the street.” Greg Packer has been that man for over a decade. Counting individual articles in the Nexis database since 1994, Packer has been quoted or photographed at least 16 times on separate occasions by the Associated Press, 14 times by Newsday, 13 times by the New York Daily News and 12 times by the New York Post. And he’s still counting. Reporter Amy O’Leary went on rounds with the media’s favorite vox populi.
