Goldblog on the Move

More

Goldblog is in the process of transferring its operations to Summer Goldblog Headquarters on Martha's Vineyard. If the President of the United States can take a vacation during this time of crisis on an island crammed with members of the oblivious ruling class, so can Goldblog. Unlike the President, Goldblog will not be staying at a 28.5 acre compound, but at his mother-in-law's house, which could use some paint and an air-conditioner. This is, of course, preferable, even without the air-conditioner, because Goldblog has a saintly mother-in-law. In fact, I feel a bit sorry for President Obama, because he doesn't get to stay with my mother-in-law. Maybe next year.

Goldblog and Mrs. Goldblog are making various stops on the way (if you consider northern Vermont on the way to Martha's Vineyard from Washington, D.C.) to collect the various junior Goldblogs at their various camps. Goldblog refers to this mini-van-based journey as the Jewish hajj.

Alas, all will not be surf-and-turf fun on the Vineyard, because, like the President's vacations, Goldblog's vacations are also filled with work. I must calm the markets, and also blog. Watch this space soon for posts on the recent terrorist attacks in Israel; on Goldblog's experience on several different Pakistan International Airways flights, and on his recent interview with Norway's foreign minister, Jonas Gahr Store. Stay tuned. 

Jeffrey Goldberg is a national correspondent for The Atlantic and a recipient of the National Magazine Award for Reporting. He is the author of Prisoners: A Story of Friendship and Terror. More

He was previouslly a correspondent for The New York Times Magazine and New York magazine. He has also written for the Jewish Daily Forward and was a columnist for The Jerusalem Post.

Goldberg's book Prisoners was hailed as one of the best books of 2006 by the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Slate, The Progressive, Washingtonian magazine, and Playboy. He received the 2003 National Magazine Award for Reporting for his coverage of Islamic terrorism and the 2005 Anti-Defamation League Daniel Pearl Prize. He is also the winner of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists prize for best international investigative journalist; the Overseas Press Club award for best human-rights reporting; and the Abraham Cahan Prize in Journalism.

In 2001, Goldberg was appointed the Syrkin Fellow in Letters of the Jerusalem Foundation, and in 2002 he became a public-policy scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C.
