"The time has come," the Walrus said...

And so, we must speak of many things.

We here at the Bleakonomy Northern Office are moving southward. After five years in the greater Augusta area, Yours Truly has accepted a new position at a practice in Massachusetts. It's an exciting opportunity, of the kind that probably come very rarely. I'm too superstitious to kvell about it, as there are still a few administrative Is to dot and Ts to cross, but the new job means I'll get to work at a couple of nifty hospitals and have a minor academic appointment to a medical school of good reputation.

Anyhow, I mention this because the move will probably mean a big change in my ability to post here. While our Wee Little Blog hasn't quite taken the Internet by storm, we do have a steady stream of regular readers, for which I am genuinely grateful. I've had a lot of fun, and have enjoyed the ongoing conversation that has sprung up here. I hope I'll be able to continue to post with some frequency, but over the next couple of weeks it will probably get pretty spotty. Once I'm at the new office, we'll see if there are gaps in my day that afford time to write for the blog.

Thanks for reading, and for your comments. Thanks to my other authors, who I hope will continue to post. And for now, wish me luck.


  1. I hope this is as sincere as all the times that Andrew Sullivan threatens to cut down on blogging.

  2. Best of luck, and thanks for all the fish!

  3. I do, always.

  4. Buena suerte. Ádh mór oraibh. Buona fortuna. זאָל זייַנ מיט מאַזל 好运 Glück Bonne chance حظا سعيدا

    However you want to say it, the sentiment is the same.


  5. How exciting that you'll be in Taxachusetts! Good luck on the move, best of luck to your family, and hope to read you again soon.
