Old business: update on WSJ's Taranto and Eason-gate

Housekeeping item:

I've just updated an old post (from February) on my online "discussion" with James Taranto on whether he wrote the unsigned Wall Street Journal editorial on Eason Jordan.

The post now includes an e-mail Taranto sent me stating,
Of course, in response to No. 1, it's also the closest I could come to a public acknowledgment that someone else wrote the editorial. Cheers, James
The "No. 1" to which he is responding is my comment that a piece he wrote "seems as close as Taranto can come, without violating Journal policy, to a public acknowledgment that he wrote the editorial."
