THE WASHINGTON POST has bought Slate. I hope they won't screw with Kausfiles, which is perfect as-is, except for the lack of permalinks.

UPDATE: Hugh Hewitt's take:

Howard Kurtz reports that the Washington Post has bought Slate, which I think boils down to buying Kaus and some office furniture. Best first move for the Post management team: Put Dionne to work in some obscure corner of Slate and get a couple of print columns a week out of Kausfiles.

And give Kaus a raise!
