Holidays are over. It's a New Year. I need your pitches. City Desks, District Lines, covers, and then some. Get outta bed.
We might as well just start filtering CityDesk posts through here: http://www.passiveaggressivenotes.com/
What the fuck happened to the website? It's not the site the readers used to know last spring or summer. It's altered, redesigned and hard to recognize. How awful.
Erik: Leave Jason alone!
Jason: Don't take any shit, buddy! You're a 5-time AAN award winner, damnit.
Ernest: Happy New Year!
SarahG: Such unusual yet lovely name.
Ernest has been through much hardtship lately.
Oh shucks, Peg.
Erik: What the f*&^ is all this nonsense? I mean, the CP is quickly becoming quite uninteresting, unreadable, even. I understand about Arlington but stolen helmets, parking tickets, baseball, knitting, fires on the Hill, suicidal people, Gibbs?.. No, really. Is there nothing more interesting to write about?.. No relevant area wide socio-political phenomena (that really matter) to explore?!.. Something. Anything. How about such titles as “The Metro area IT job market usurped by Indians and Chinese!”, “Zionist leanings in Bethesda” or or maybe someone could produce a deeply analytical piece on the recent DC tax scandal viewed as an unfortunate example of a desperayte attempt to catch up with the rampant consumerism of the times by the members of the African- American community? Puleeease, broaden the specter of the discussion to make the paper more interesting!
Tell them, Ernest! Tell them the truth!
