Definately. Run the hot and neutral to the switch. Hot(black) in to one
terminal on the switch. Hot(black) out on the other terminal to the first
receptacle. Neutral(white) continues through without a switch connection.
Then connect the receptacles as usual, Black(hot)-Bronze, White(neutral) to
silver. Don't forget to connect the ground to everything.
Certainly. You wire them up *exactly* the same as you would two light fixtures
to be controlled by the same switch.

It's possible, and done often. I've done it with the two recepticals on each
side of our bed. What's more, since it rare that you'll need both outlets
in each receptical switched, you might consider taking it a step further and
run 3 conductor wire between the switch and the recepticals. Switch the RED
conductor but leave the black hot and then break the tab between the two
brass screws. Connect the red to one screw and the black to the other.
That way only one of the outlets will be switched while the other remains
