Dear Mr. Bezos,
Have I got a deal for you: turn Washington DC into Amazon’s HQ2.
After all, as smart lobbyists all know, DC can be had for cheap – wicked cheap.
From Quincy Quarry’s media brethren at The Washington Post comes perhaps the best snarky proposal for finding a home for Amazon’s proposed HQ2.

The basic proposal is not to set up shop somewhere in the 75 percent of the District of Columbia owned by the public.
Rather, it is to provide whatever Amazon needs from the 25 percent of Washington DC that is controlled by the federal government – 9,683 acres, to be exact.
