John Simon, continued

Thanks to Richard, a reader, for prompting me to follow up on whatever happened to John Simon's Bloomberg stint, i.e. why we can't find him anywhere on the site.
Well, I'm glad to report I received this prompt response from the "Bloomberg Website Feedback Team ":

Hello: John Simon writes for Bloomberg Professional service. Bloomberg Pro is a leased-fee based service accessed by clients.
So John Simon now writes theatre reviews for investment bankers only? Weird gig.

UPDATE 7/18: Oops. Scooped by Talkin' Broadway's All That Chat. Simon's column has now just debuted, actually, and seems to be open access (?). Simon fans can now bookmark the Bloomberg "Culture" page...
