The WaPo

is freaking out because it has no money. It is losing money hand over fist. A writer for Slate is freaking out and saying that Bezos is rich and so he should just keep throwing cash at it. Because he’s rich.

It forcefully reminds me of PG Wodehouse’s character of Aunt Dahlia and her publication (Milady’s Boudoir) that, while chronically losing money, is dear to her. She therefore depends upon her husband Tom Travers to keep it afloat. He tends to humor her and oblige.

It’s a great vehicle for humor.
