Washingtonian successfully recharged interest in their magazine and made national news by publishing a shirtless Obama on their cover in May. Now, Washington City Paper is raising the bar with their classy cover of Marion Barry and the headline “You Put Me Out in Denver ‘Cause I Wouldn’t Suck Your XXX”
