Our sister Washington City Paper is causing a stink with their Marion Barry cover, which employs a coarse phrase for fellatio.

"Only problem with Kurtz’s column: 'City Paper trumpeted its cover online as a "collector’s edition"–a bit of a joke, since all of its 72,000 copies are free.' Actually, if he cared to look inside the front cover, he might’ve seen that we doubled the newsstand price (DOUBLE-FREE) for this special collector’s edition."

Someone get Chris Anderson on this.
