URL UPDATE....Ezra Klein has picked up and moved yet again. He's now been fully absorbed by The American Prospect and blogs here:


Damn kids. I've lost track, but this is now either the fourth or fifth URL Ezra has had in the past four years. Is he ever going to settle down?

In related news, Ezra's weekend posters have gone off on their own and are now group blogging at a new home called Cogitamus (http://www.cogitamusblog.com). Check it out.

Go, Ezra!! And I guess Garance isn't worth mentioning. ;-)

I've been reading Matt Yglesias since he was on blogspot, so that's at least 3 URLs for him, and for a while he was blogging at 2 different places at the same time, so I guess 3.5. Garance is switching too. As they say, the only way to get a good raise these days is to switch jobs, and for journalists/pundits the prestige of their writing venue is another form of compensation.

And you yourself used to be at another URL, Mr. CalPundit.

I guess that email I sent you back in 2003 predicting professional bloggers turned out pretty good (you were skeptical). I was right on you and Matt, wrong on Billmon, but he could have blogged professionally if he had wanted to. And I've been reading Ezra since he was writing on Not Geniuses. Guess I have a good eye.

And I guess Garance isn't worth mentioning.

I wish Kevin would mention Garance Franke-Ruta, aka GFRbage. She's Erza's reverse: both are young but he's smart and she's shallow, he's a real liberal and she's a liberal poseur. It's not surprising that the WAPO hired her while Erza remains with a liberal publication.

How many "Get off my lawn" posts can you have in one day, Kevin?

Petrificus Cogitamus! Swish and flush. I've met ethical werewolves, and that one ain't either.

Cogitamus has a nice little ring to it.

*I've enjoyed reading Ezra, Neil, litbrit & crew for several weeks now. I wish them all well in their new endeavers.

What is with you today? You seem cross at Ezra for moving up in the world, want to punish Iran more after we learn they aren't quite the bad actors we thought they were, & are bitching out the Presidential candidates for being too successful - make that rich.

Thanks for your support, Kevin!

You want him to move in with Feministing and spawn a series of little blogs of their own, perhaps?
