Quick housekeeping announcement: Today will be my last day blogging for the Washington Monthly. Tomorrow I am leaving Washington and heading back to my hometown of Boston to take a new job up there.

I’ve greatly enjoyed my time at the Monthly and am proud of what this site has become over a short span of time. And it will only get better: Starting Monday, in this space you will see the blogging of the very talented Daniel Luzer. Daniel, who has already written some posts, previously worked as an editorial fellow at Mother Jones. Oh, and It’s pronounced Loot-zer.

Without getting too sappy, I did want to quickly thank everyone I’ve worked with at the Monthly, where I have very quickly come to feel like family. I’ve had a great time here and will miss it very much.

Well, I guess that’s it. Thanks everyone, and keep fighting the good fight!
