CITY PAP: Following up on their groundbreaking yuppie bread investigation, City Paper (ordinarily a good read!) runs a cover story on CVS and why people don’t like it. Ooohhh, bad service. Arrrggghhhh, class warfare. Bleah.

Story from this week’s CP that would have made a better cover story than the CVS rant: “Parks and Wrecks,” a great piece by Garance Franke-Ruta on how abandoned parks become crime magnets.

Story from the Washington Post that completely scooped what should have been a CP story: “Revitalization Promised, Not Delivered in District,” a two-part expose of nonprofit development groups that mismanaged city cash. The nonprofits enriched friends and board members, while the abandoned houses they were supposed to fix up were left to the addicts and the rats. If you’ve got a Nexis account, read these stories.

However, CP did run a quickie on this site, which posts photos of D.C.’s beautiful, decaying Victorian hulks. So that’s four good pages counting Franke-Ruta. (The CVS story took up ten.)
