Deb Howell: Sticking Around

Best we can tell, Washington Post ombudsman Deb Howell has had her two year contract with the Washington Post extended. She was given a two-year contract and started in 2005. This could mean that, since she’s still writing for the paper more than two years later, perhaps her contract was extended? The original deal gave her a two year gig with an option to extend it for one year.

We tried to ask Ms. Howell — being that her job is to answer reader mail and all — but emails to both her and Len Downie went unreturned.

What do readers think of this extension for Howell?
