Gotham Times Secrets
Clicking around on page 1 of the article reveals this little clickable secret left by The Joker:
This leads you to the HA HA Time, www.thehahahatimes.com, a mockery of the paper:
We are the Answer
The “We are the answer” (www.wearetheanswer.org) now shows a “Not authorised” page, the defacto Internet Explorer version… which I’m not sure I should see on Firefox. This hints that the page itself is manufactured, perhaps just saved as the index.
The website is now up! It seems to be some sort of neighborhood watch scheme where civilians can report crimes in their area. You can also find these choice quotes from Gotham politician Harvey Dent:
“Positive Feedback makes for a Positive City” — Harvey Dent
“Help us make Gotham a better, safer and stronger city by helping us to stomp out corruption” — Harvey Dent
And from the Letters of Support:
In a city where “business as usual” has meant continuing corruption and scandal, Harvey Dent is anything but usual. The assistant District Attorney is shining a light on a lot of dark corners and exposing corrupt cops and city officials. He’s making some enemies, but here at Action 3 News, we think he might be the best friend this city has had in many, many years.
–Wilson Corrigan, Spotlight on City Hall, Action 3 News.
I was born in this city in 1925 and I’ve seen her go through the dark days of World War II and the bright days of the civil rights movement and the crazy days of the sixties. But nothing seemed as bad as the last couple of years. Bless Harvey Dent. What we need is more people like him, instead of having to depend on a crazy man in a costume to do what the police aren’t doing.
–T. Johnson, letter to The Gotham Times
Dear Mr. Dent,
After all the things that have been happening, and especially the Fear Toxin attack, I applied for a transfer with my company. I felt that, despite the roots I have here—I grew up here and my parents live here—Gotham was not a place where my wife and I could raise our soon to be born son. I hated to move away. If people like me move away, soon all that would be left would be the poor and the desperate. I withdrew that request for transfer today. You make me feel hope for this city. Your work gives me the courage to stay and fight for the city I love.
