Was given to understand these foul cicadas would go away in a couple of weeks. They have not. Am seriously considering not renewing my subscription to the Wishful Thinking Picayune-Times.

For those of you who can’t understand why or how thoroughly I hate DC and everything in it, here’s an example of the everything. And remember: These people are running the country, and they hire in-office hookers who shop at Banana Republic and say things like “Hate D.C. sidewalks: not made for ladies in high heels.” (sounds of indistinct grumbing as AG moves on to something else, as this one isn’t worth thinking too much about)
