It is a small mercy that the Washington Post relegates Petula Dvorak’s column to the paper’s Metro section below the fold, preventing at least some readers from happening upon her insipid thoughts. According to a short biography offered by the Post, Dvorak’s areas of journalistic expertise include “homeless shelters, gun control, high heels, high school choirs, the politics of parenting, jails, abortion clinics, mayors, modern families, strip clubs and gas prices, among other things.” Perhaps Dvorak has some minor knack for hard-hitting reporting on women’s footwear and gentlemen’s clubs, but as her latest commentary shows, her forays into gun control politics lack the most basic competence.
