City Paper is not for tourists
Weekend marked an end to a mid-winter Sunday slump for the Washington Post. Readable articles this time included:
*Definitive assessment of ravages of condo conversion trend. Sure, story’s a decade old, but still compelling.
*More immersion on the drama of the superdelegate votes for Hillary and Obama.
*The last word, hopefully, on Charlotte Allen‘s idiotic piece on women and her editor’s craven pursuit of buzz.
*A solid piece by Liza Mundy on the true meaning of those marriage vows that you parroted without really thinking about.
*The Examiner‘s prize bit of wire copy discusses bad water being used by the troops in Iraq.
*The Washington Times could have come up with a less duh headline than this one: “Pennsylvania demographics resemble Ohio”. Well, you don’t say.
*New York Times Mag—in the Money Issue—goes deep on the impact of celebs in advancing do-gooder causes worldwide.
