Readers- I'm going to take a break for a bit and will be posting only sporadically (but if you're on the email list, you'll always be alerted to new material).
I'm glad to say that there's nothing sad, sinister, or even remotely depressing behind this decision. Rather, it's a case of there being some other fun things I want to accomplish and currently there just isn't enough time to squeeze everything in.
Plus, after doing this for 12+ years, it doesn't help that the news has become an unrelentingly negative slog. At this point, I think we can all agree that our country is on the receiving end of metaphorical (and perhaps literal) Chinese water torture without the need for me to opine on every new droplet as it splatters on our foreheads.
I'll definitely have more to say about all of this (probably on Friday) after doing some thought-gathering and navel-gazing (which I'd previously given up for Lint). For now, just know that all is well and I'm in a perfectly good mood, but change is in the air!
