Story pick: Dan Snyder is an angry man

By Brigid Schulte

With the news that Redskins owner Dan Snyder filed a $2 million lawsuit against Washington City Paper for writing an unflattering story about him, today's pick could only be Gene Weingarten's hilarious Memo to Snyder.

Weingarten writes:

I just want you to know you have my full support in this matter, as I support everything you have done during your stewardship of the Redskins. You rock. I wish you good health and long life and hope you run the franchise for many, many years to come. I say this with utmost sincerity as a lifelong fan of the New York Giants.

In true Weingarten fashion, he goes on to take Snyder down: "After another losing season in which your recently acquired $78 million over-the-hill quarterback got benched and your corpulent $100 million defensive lineman simply refused to play, it is heartening to see you focusing your resources on trying to punish a newspaper."

Of course, no story about the legal brouhaha would be complete without a link to the article in question. You'll find it here.
