What a joyless week it's been here in Washington. We're in the middle of a "crime emergency" that's sprinkled with a heavy dose of racial tension.
In times like these, one needs to look for something that can put a little joy in one's heart. I have found that one thing.
Sign of the Whale is closing its doors.
Sure, it's going to be replaced by an Irish Pub which will surely be disappointing. But this closing will inconvenience many of the people I don't like. Namely meatheads and sluts. I am all about inconveniencing sluts.
And where will all of these orphaned drinkers go? They'll most likely walk the half block to Madhatter's. That's fine by me. My problems with Madhatter are well documented. The combination of the Sign of the Whale crowd and the regular Madhatter crowd will make Madhatter's the Chernobyl of bars. The place will just radiate with morons.
That's a good thing. If everyone I despise goes to the same place, I won't run into them at the more enjoyable saloons in town.
It's nice to see some change for the better around here.
