In a very funny followup to the whole silly Barry-Page kerfuffle, local Mike Licht has gotten told to buzz off and quit emailing… Barry’s communications director Andre Johnson of ProImage Communications.
My favorite part of the exchange is when Johnson tells Licht “I have never heard of you and truly don’t understand why I am getting emails from you.” I guess being someone’s employed communications director and receiving an email asking a question about Barry – complete with signature line clearly identifying himself as being from NotionsCapital.com – was a little confusing for him.
I think Gene Weingarten has made the best statement on the matter in his chat yesterday where he said
The controlling fact, for me, would have been this: The only reason this became public is that Marion Barry chose to make it public. And he chose to make it public in a quite hilarious way: Marion Barry, suspected and convicted scuzzball, tax evader, former crack user, erstwhile obtainer of oral sex in a crowded prison reception room, calls the elegant, sophisticated Tim Page, and I quote, a “lowlife.”
