Given the Washington Post’s recent orgy of hero worship for Bob Woodward, it seems only fair to note that it is your paper, not the Post, that has the fearless investigative reporters—at least as far as the D.C. government is concerned. Whenever this government commits some new foolishness so bizarre that the Post simply must report on it, their fearless investigators suddenly seem to become reluctant or downright cowardly. Fortunately, your writers are never timid. An incompetence so unashamed and blatant as that of the D.C. government deserves exuberant reporting—Washington City Paper reporting, not the whining of the Post.
