“The Painmaker” (1/13) has settled the question of my favorite newspaper in the District. Great article. I am especially grateful for the author’s ability to untangle Richard Luchs’ insincere, simplistic libertarian arguments and uncover deplorable behavior. If Luchs does not want to be treated like a “villain,” he shouldn’t be acting like one—whether or not he is a “fourth-generation Washingtonian.” But I suppose since I was born in Oklahoma, my opinion doesn’t really count, does it?
