    This is probably a waste of time, since you don’t seem to pay any attention to your posts and never fix broken links or other issues, but since I can’t find any other way to get you a little message, here goes.

    For the past few days your links to Washington Post articles have gone to a pay wall. Google shows alternate links that go straight to the articles.

    Your link:
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/a-feast-for-regulatory-parasites/2017/12/14/bfa009a2-e115-11e7-bbd0-9dfb2e37492a_story.html?utm_term=.771158874c29
    goes to a version of the article blocked by a paywall.

    goes to a free version of the article.

    I don’t know why there’s a difference, but your links are useless for me. I don’t have much hope that you’ll see this, since you don’t seem to curate your blog at all and don’t respond to comments, but there’s no harm in trying.
