The Washington Post has been going through a rough patch lately, what with the relatively inexplicable firing of Dan Froomkin (especially compared with the astronomically more inexplicable retention of Charles Krauthammer) followed up by last week's revelation that the paper was going to charge for "salons" consisting of off-the-record confabs among power brokers and including members of the paper's news staff.
And now this.
The Post's Pet Tricks Video Contest has bounced Matilda, an impossibly cute eight-week-old Corgi preying on an unsuspecting ice cube, from the competition with a highly suspicious Honorable Mention. You tell me, after sitting through some ad or other, that this isn't Grand Prize material:
The others, all admittedly cute but really not as cute as Matilda, may be found here (may have to sign in, watch ads, attend salon).
