Anyway. I've started reading it, and he has already confirmed something I've suspected for a while!
"he'd just had a job offer. The Washington Post had invited him to blog for ten days. Not that the timing was so great: "It was July Fourth. Everyone was on vacation. There were no readers and there wasn't a lot of news.""
I've been saying for a while that I just have to quit paying attention to the news on certain holidays (notably, from shortly before school lets out until shortly after Labor Day, and from just before T-weekend until well into the first week of the New Year) because all the Real Adults are busy with the rest of their lives and the people left doing news are just random and aggravating. Ha! I did not imagine this phenomenon.
