I ride for you, I rhyme for you, I roll for you, it's all for you:
To all the TNR Talkback poster-boys and -girls on the Plank, the Spine and Deep in the Count, thank you so, so much. Your support means the world to me, especially that of those who disagree with my writing or reporting.

Also, to clear up a minor point, when eoverpec referred on DitC to my use of the term "douches," it wasn't in reference to anything I had said about my editors. Baseball makes me potty-mouthed, and I used the word to describe, say, Scott Spezio or David Wells or Ronnie Belliard.

To further clarify the point, you actually used the term "douche" to describe me. But yes, I didn't mean that you had actually described any editors of TNR as douches. It was an inside joke apparently with myself. I hope I didn't cause you any problems by saying that. Good luck,

For what it's worth, I cancelled my subscription to TNR more or less immediately on learning that you were no longer writing for it. I didn't know that there was anything more to the story; I just saw that you were writing at Tapped and thought: great! The person whose writing is basically the only reason why I subscribe to TNR (aside from the odd article by people not on TNR's staff) has just gone to work for a magazine I already subscribe to, leaving me free to cancel, which I've been wanting to do for ages.

I mean: you really were the only reason I ever renewed.

I might actually subscribe to the Prospect now...
