The Washington Examiner is starting to emotionally feel a lot like ex-Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.). There was that weird incident in college when Wu allegedly forced himself on a woman. And that recent relationship with the 18-year-old? He says the sex was consensual. Reports say it was “unwanted.”
And so goes the Washington Examiner, dumping itself on people’s lawns when, in a growing number of cases, the customers simply don’t want it. Sure, maybe they picked it up long enough to throw it into a trashcan. Or maybe they perused it on the way to the trashcan. But no, they didn’t want it. They don’t want it. That’s right — they’re just not that into you. So stop trying to make Wu-hoopee with people who aren’t interested. It’s just getting awkward for all parties involved. Not to mention, um, creepy?

Does anyone know how to cancel unwanted (& unrequested) home delivery of the Washington Examiner? There is little contact information inside the paper itself, and the email addresses I have tried haven’t worked.
