"John Brown [to Don Graham, chief executive officer and Chairman of The Washington Post Company; director and chairman of Facebook Inc.]: 'Too many adjectives in describing your declining newspaper's articles, e.g., 'excellent' and the horrid 'terrific.' You need better editors, not more self-promoting facebook entries. Thursday at 7:28am"
"Don Graham [chief executive officer and Chairman of The Washington Post Company; director and chairman of Facebook Inc.]mentioned you in a comment. Don wrote: 'John Brown, stop by and talk about it one morning. You can bring a supply of new adjectives.'"
"John Brown: Hi Don, How about meeting at the Subway eatery right off the west side of the Cleveland Park Metro Station on the Red Line? We could have lunch over a tuna/cheese 6" delight. It's a 'terrific' (or should I say 'excellent') place, so I'll be glad to be your 'friendly' host any day/time that's convenient to you. And of course we could, if you agree, read at à haute voix the 'fab' pieces from your intellectually declining 'high-quality' Washington Post, which matches the 'great' culinary qualities of Subway extremely well. Regrettably, I don't have a 'with-it' supply of new adjectives; so, if you don't mind, I'll bring loads of antiquated descriptive words (the older the better, I assure you, like what 'a-piece-of-crap' articles) -- and Alka Selzter (the item, not just the word) as well. Looking forward to our meeting," John
