Several sources are running stories about a little dustup in the WaPo offices last week. Fishbowl actually has an on-record confirmation from a WaPo source that the sock-in-the-face did happen. The lesson here seems to be that you shouldn’t call anyone a c*cksucker and feel confident they won’t swing at you, even if they’re in their 70s.
The piece of writing that apparently set this whole thing in motion was Saturday’s piece about infamous accidental disclosures in history. Personally I had a hard time working up the enthusiasm to read the whole thing, much less get into a brawl over it.
Update: Tom suggests that this story demands a little Anchorman.
