Quick update to the Sally Quinn saga over at the Washington Post: the paper has, indeed, pulled the plug on her "Party" column.

On Friday, Quinn used the column — which the Post launched late last year as a guide to “entertaining and how to do it” — to ostensibly rebuff criticism about a wedding scheduling snafu within her famous extended family. It drew quickly criticism from family members and bloggers.

Executive editor Marcus Brauchli confirmed the killing to Washington City Paper blogger Erik Wemple, who first reported Quinn’s column was on the chopping block:

"Sally and I have agreed that the column will return to what had been its original focus on faith, family and entertaining and will appear online at ‘On Faith,’ a section of washingtonpost.com that Sally guides."
