Weekend in Review

Update: I have checked with all my sources in the local media scene. It appears that there was no fight in the Style section of the Washington Post this past Friday, so this coming week will be that much more routine.

Weekend in Review

Well, it took a few days, but the opinionmakers over at the Washington Post came up with some impressions on how D.C. public schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee handled herself at a pivotal Thursday hearing before the D.C. Council. Here's the WaPo editorial board, which hardly interrupts its yearslong standing ovation of the Rhee regime:

Cheap Seats Daily: Special Non-Pullout Football Preview Section!

The NFL season starts tonight. The only must-read of all the pre-kickoff previews: Erik Wemple's take on Sunday's Redskins/Giants game. His post attracted a group of meatheads to the comments section the way a roach motel does roaches. It's a meathead motel, is what I'm sayin'. Don't miss it.
A near-miss must-read: "A Decade of Snyder [...]

Morning Roundup: “You Lie!” Edition

ANOTHER HORSE'S ASS NAMED JOE WILSON, this time a Republican, breaks decorum and accidentally says what he thinks. This is a cause of great concern!

Late last week, the New York Giants released troubled wide receiver Plaxico Burress in what news accounts described as a very unexpected turn of events. The team, after all, had left the door open for Burress' return following a November incident in which his unregistered gun allegedly went off in a New York nightclub.
Perhaps [...]

The Redskins Anti-Curse™ Holding Strong

As predicted in this space last week, the Cardinals and Eagles benefitted from the Anti-Curse of the Redskins.
Turns out that since Dan Snyder started calling the shots around here, letting the Redskins beat you has become a surer way to get your hands on a Lombardi Trophy than having Tom Brady as your quarterback.
Snyder [...]

The Giants Should’ve Let the Redskins Win One

Bet the mortgage on the Eagles and/or Cardinals this weekend.
Both these squads got beat by the Redskins this year — the Cardinals in Week 3 and the Eagles in Weeks 5 & 16.
In recent seasons, there aren't many harbingers of Super Bowl success as trusty as taking a whupping from the lowly Skins.
You can look [...]
