There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.

You almost had me. At first I thought Uppity Negro (“Co-opt City,” 6/11) was real. But then I read Dan Savage and saw where he had printed a fake letter and been duped. Your Uppity Negro story was very funny—and thank god not real. Wouldn’t it be sad for our world if a person like Andrea Carter really existed?

Best story I’ve ever read in the City Paper. Please have Mike DeBonis do more humor like it. Coffee will never look the same to me.
