According to a disturbing post on MY Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, Beth is hanging up the . . . the . . . whatever it is bloggers use to ply their trade. I'll take her at her word, but I'm not happy. For -- how many years? -- Beth's crisp, snappy, sarcastic, sometimes cynical, always lucid, and 100 percent on-the-money writing has made the little dramas of the news bearable. When I've been discouraged, Beth has picked me up.
I wish her all the best, and her thoughts are always welcome in my view.
