Lemme get this straight: The Washington City Paper hates dogs (“Doggie Treats,” 2/21). The Washington City Paper hates the Washington Monument (“Going Down,” 2/21). What’s next—kittens, apple pie, and motherhood? The fellow who wants to knock down the monument even resorts to the booboisie’s “My 8-year-old nephew could do better” cliché!

Thanks for reminding us that rants are like assholes: Everyone’s got one, and they all stink.
