Brooklyn Paper Scribe Obsessed With Brooklyn Heights’ Captain Cleanup

Just as we were getting all misty eyed over old pal/former Brooklyn Paper EIC Gersh Kuntzman’s return to the interwebs, another local journo has caught our eye.

Almost a month after we stamped fini on the adventures of post box painter Captain Cleanup, the Brooklyn Paper’s Jamie Lutz seems to be just “getting the memo”. Behold:

So, should the Captain remain underground or surface for an interview? Comment away!
