I may be offbase in characterizing Arkin's relationship to the Post. Because I read the Post online, I ass-u-me that what's online is also what's in print.
Here's a comment from Arkin's post "The Arrogant and Intolerant Speak Out":
Seems that the WaPo ombudsman (Deborah Howell) was kind enough to respond to me today:
"Arkin is a columnist only for washingtonpost.com. He does not write for the newspaper. I am the ombudsman only for the newspaper. I suggest you write to firstname.lastname@example.org"
So...The paper disavows it's relationship with their own online edition and it's writers?

I'm not sure how this changes my reaction, or whether it does.
