Bravo to Michael Schaffer for managing to cram into one article every piece of propaganda fed to him by those who oppose the new Washington Convention Center (“When Pigs Fly,” 1/9).

Schaffer also manages to savage the entire Shaw community, which he describes as a bankrupt, crime-ridden, violence-prone wasteland populated by poverty-stricken, homeless, drug-dealing street people. The convention center is “crapping” all over the neighborhood and threatening to turn Shaw into Disneyland, according to Schaffer.

The only thing crapping on Shaw is Washington City Paper, and Schaffer has joined the band of the “idiots” (his word) standing outside yelling into megaphones.
