Telling it like it is...

Seems the former druggie/crook Mayor (now Councilman) of DC has managed yet once again to monopolize the news in our parts with another "lookit me" incident.

One of Marion Barry's staff sent out an email to several dozen reporters to tout his (Barrry's) latest vote on a local controversial hospital issue. One of those reporters happened to be the classical music critic(!) for the Washington Post. The guy doesn't even cover politics, let alone Marion Barry!

So, the reporter fired back the following email:

"Must we hear about it every time this crack addict attempts to rehabilitate himself with some new--and typically half witted--political grandstanding?

I'd be grateful if you would take me off your mailing list. I cannot think of anything the useless Marion Barry could do that would interest me in the slightest, up to and including overdose.

Sincerely, Tim Page."

Heh, heh, heh - sounds about right to me! Guess the truth hurts or the shoe fits or something cuz now Barry is all uppity about it all, calling it a racial hate thing, and demanding that the man be fired! Ha!

The Post has taken disciplinary action against Mr. Page and he has been placed on leave.
Too bad. He oughta be given some kind of truth in journalism award. He just wrote what most law-abiding citizens of the area think...
