Pour out a little liquor

When I first started blogging, I read and linked to Matt pretty religiously. That hasn't changed (scroll down, I'm sure you can find a couple links) mostly because Matt's always had what I think is essential in any great blogger/writer--a sense of humor. This is typical sort of turn of a sentence that I could never pull off. While I'm excited about blogging for the Atlantic, I'm pretty bummed about following in his footsteps as opposed to working with him as a colleague. Nevertheless, I really wish him the best and will continue to read and link to him religiously.
