Let me get this straight: dupont circle parents who want a better education for their kids at their neighborhood public school are villains. Local residents who worked to deny recreational opportunities to small children are victims.

And the City Paper, which used to stand up for the rights of residents against unresponsive and corrupt government, has gone over to the other side.
