Post Watch: Still Here! Eleven Writers You Don’t Want to Miss

A good newspaper is a collection of great bylines. After more than 100 staffers took the Post’s recent buyout offer, here are 11 bylines we still want to read every day:

Walter Pincus: He combs documents to unearth government secrets.

Mike Wilbon: Without fear or favor, he writes a pair of sports columns a week.

Robin Givhan: She uses fashion to undress the rich and powerful.

Dana Milbank: His Washington Sketch is great reading for those in need of a wry look at what passes for serious news.

Dana Priest: She’s a Pulitzer Prize winner bound to ferret out more blunders.

Carolyn Hax: Created by the Post, she spins a pungent and wise advice column.

Marc Fisher: Still the Post’s best Metro columnist, he finds the funny and the maddening.

J. Freedom du Lac: Style’s pop-music critic grazes from Keith Richards to Patti Smith with indie rockers in the mix.

Paul Schwartzman: City-desk reporter veers off the political beat to highlight changes others can’t see.

Emily Wax and Ellen Knickmeyer: two foreign correspondents who never fail to find good stories in far corners of the world.
