The Washington Post's Outlook section took a fun approach to the annual "spring cleaning" topic. Ten interesting people nominated institutions or individuals they know well that we'd all be better off without.


Thomas Ricks, senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security. He nominated West Point, the Naval Academy and the Air Force Academy.

Farhad Manjoo, technology columnist for Slate. He wrote that it's time to do away with paying for television.

Ana Marie Cox, national correspondent for Air America. She argues for doing away with the White House press corps.
