This is too depressing for me to think about right now.

And, hey, if you're a fan of the paper, and need to be more thoroughly demoralized, you can also scroll down to the comments on this bit in DCist and see the usual cretins pooping on the CP's writing, too.

Obviously I'm hopelessly, utterly biased, but the only reason I ever aspired to write for the CP in the first place was the quality of the prose--readable, but considered. There's no reason to slap the reader around with jargon and dense verbiage; at the same time, there's no call for insulting the reader's intelligence, either. In my view, critics ought to assume people are reading because they're actually interested in the subject at hand.
