Just a reminder that our blog — and the entire Washington Post — can be freely accessed, without going through the paywall, by .edu/.gov/.mil users (and users at some foreign educational institutions as well). If you’re using an .edu/.gov/.mil host, you should be able to get through automatically. And if you’re working from home, you can register for free using your .edu/.gov/.mil e-mail address.

If you’re not an .edu/.gov/.mil user, there are still ways for you to access our site for free; click on that post for details. But if you are an .edu/.gov/.mil user, it should be even easier.
