Back in November I mentioned that there was a certain newspaper in DC that I would never link to on this site again. Well, that rag has dedicated this week's front page to Late Night Shots. It publishes offensive posts from their increasingly boring comment threads. It has the author crash LNS events at Smith Point. Real fantastic hands-in-the-mud journalism.
Sorry guys, but you're about a year late to the party. That's a social offense even worse than mistaking loafers for boating shoes. My first LNS mention on this site was on June 1, 2006. Wonkette picked up on it soon after. My first Smith Point crash was in November (where I finally met the very polite, affable, and legendary Reed Landry). After their Valentine's party I stopped giving a shit. I'm not the only one. Wonkette hasn't published a "Last Week's Shots" in forever.
I noted that a good number of the posts published today were in Wonkette first. I would be furious if I were them. It's easy to write a cover story when a good deal of the research has already been done for you.
No one cares about LNS anymore. Just like no one cares about this shitty and increasingly irrelevant paper.
