WaPo fistfights, with style

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.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
