Good Night, and Good Luck

Well, kids, today is my last day as an Atlantic blogger and this is my last Atlantic post. The blog should re-launch on Monday, August 11 at:

http://yglesias.thinkprogress.org

That means no blogging for me for a week. I think I haven’t gone 24 hours without a blog post since 2004, and I haven’t gone blogless for a week since I started doing this over six years ago. I’m not sure if the vacation will be good for me, or if I’ll just drive everyone I know crazy pointing out that someone is wrong on the internet.

But I’m excited, both about the vacation and about the new job at the Center for American Progress. But it’s been a real thrill to spend some time as an “Atlantic Voice” and get to know Andrew and Ambinder, to work with Ross and Reihan and Megan, and, of course, to do The Table with its unsung heros Jenny and Terrence. I think Ta-Nehisi will be a great addition to the site, and I hope I’ll be a good addition to the CAP team. And with that -- goodbye, see you in a bit over a week.
