A few items to note. First off, the obligatory "how about that weather" statement. No, really, how about it.
Now I'd like to address the most frequent comment about this site:
"I don't understand that site, if they hate D.C. so much why don't they just move away?"

While James F. and Rusty would give you different answers (e.g. they actually did move away), I'm looking at this a bit differently. I didn't grow up here, but I've been here for a while now. I'm going to stay here for a while. There's a difference between hating living in Washington, D.C. and hating all of the incompetence and stupidity that makes it difficult to enjoy living here. I do not hate living here. I quite enjoy living here. My goal for this site is to point out the things that are wrong with this place. You've got a million and a half I love D.C. blogs. You've got thousands of "oh my goodness I love living here everything is great museums yay!" blogs. If you're reading a site called "Why I Hate DC" there is no point in leaving a comment saying "you are too angry why don't you just move."
On top of it, I managed to find a good job in D.C., I'm not about to pick up and leave.
So to sum up, here is a basic mission statement for the current iteration of Why I Hate DC:
why.i.hate.dc exists to provide timely, informative and often humorous commentary about the difficulties and problems of life in Washington, D.C.
If you have any questions about that, well, too bad because that's how it is. Read the site if you'd like, don't read it if you don't want to.
