Earlier, we reported that the home of the Washington Post’s Mike Shepard tragically was lost to fire. Here’s an update, posted on the Washington Post’s internal message board:
Just talked to Mike Shepard. They just signed papers to rent a place in [REDACTED], an apartment building in Chevy Chase. They will be moving there tomorrow. The apartment is not furnished, but many of their things have been restored and will be delivered to the apartmen soon. He will know by early next week what kinds of things he still needs.
Mike says he and Sonia are overwhelmed by the generosity of the people here at the Post. He said that it’s been a tough week and the support from so many people here really lifted their spirits. He will be out this week but expects to be back May 19.
