So I was contacted by some new folks, the blog now moves up to other websites, we’re happy to be called to bigger places. I would have preferred to stay here at Politizoom and Daily Sound and Fury, in addition to my new site, but the powers that be have decided they do not want to do that.
I adore you all. Many of you will get an email from me telling you where I am going. Please do not worry, I will be in a much better spot with far wider readership. Though I’ll miss you.
All in all, this is one of the best Fridays for me in a long time, it is always nice to be appreciated, and I appreciate the support here.
Thus, as a token of my appreciation, the Friday Pick-Six
WHAT YOU SHOULD PICK TO CLICK

YOUR WEEKEND REAL PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT BARTLETT.
In honor of my final post here at Zoom:
I do not wish anyone at this Politizoom ill will, indeed there wasn’t a ton that the people most involved could have done, the decision was largely made elsewhere. Please continue to support Politizooom, there are good people here with great writing. I am sure they’ll be fine.
For all who have contacted me before, I will let you know where I am going and why. Anyone wanting to email is welcome. A few here already know and they’ll likely put notices up from time to time.
I learned from all of you, and treasure all the feedback. To the extent I am better, it’s because of your feedback and what I learned. It was invaluable. Sometimes one has to make a move. I was recruited and took the offer, though I tried to work something out with Daily Sound and Fury and it will not work.
I love all of you.
