Tim Page, a classical music critic for the Washington Post and author of a recent New Yorker piece on growing up with Asperger’s Syndrome, has been placed on leave by the Post for criticizing Marion Barry.

Must we hear about it every time this Crack Addict attempts to rehabilitate himself with some new — and typically half-witted — political grandstanding?

Sincerely, Tim Page.

Update: Page has apologized for his email outburst.
