Anonymous Rant

A longtime Washington political editor writes in:

Anonymous Rant? This may be the dumbest idea since the Edsel. Who cares what some junior staffer thinks about Eminem, Rihanna or Obama? Please, for God’s sake, stop me before I kill.

Note to writer: When we meet for breakfast next week we can discuss how dumb your rant is (joking a little).

Got something on your mind but don’t want it to get you fired? Tell us about it at or We’ll use our discretion as to whether to print it. Since our first one, readers have asked about the guidelines of this feature. We’re still figuring it out, but 1. You’ll need to tell us who you are privately to ensure authenticity. 2. No raunchy cussing but some is allowed. 3. Actually scrap #2, cussing is fine. But please make sure your rant has a point.
