A long history

Wonderful story in the Washington Post's Federal Diary column as columnist Stephan Barr notes a change in location for the column after many years: A Change of Scenery, but Not of Purpose, on This Column's Long Journey. the column has been around since 1932, and in all that time, only about 5 columnists have written it. I was around the post at the end of the Jerry Kluttz and beginning of the Mike Causey eras. MIke retired a couple years ago and handed the column off to Barr.
Nice to know there are newspaper traditions that last this long.....and nice to see two Post researchers got credit for locating this history.
