Washington City Paper is interesting and intelligent. I usually find its journalistic standards and coverage of wide-ranging topics to be exemplary. I’m so proud of City Paper, every week I send a copy of it to a friend who produces a nationally syndicated radio talk show in New York.

That’s why it’s so embarrassing to see the word “whacking” misspelled on the front page (11/15), as in, “Your English teacher ought to wack you upside your head for wacking off during class!”

Outside of that, thank you for putting together another excellent edition.
