There is one and only one person at the Washington Post who will not return my phone calls. One and only one person I have called with questions about John Harris and company's view of Dan Froomkin's "Cooking with Walnuts" column who maintains radio silence.
All I get back are messages like this from her (unnamed) assistant:
Do you mind putting your questions either in an email or a letter email@example.com?...
Deborah Howell, ombudsman of the Washington Post, is the only one I have called who won't call me back.
This is funny.
