Matthew Yglesias Takes the Boeing*

Or perhaps its an Airbus, since it’s not a big corporation. At any rate, Matthew Yglesias is no longer going to be blogging at his eponymous URL but rather joining the Josh Marshall Collective.

I’m not a fan of Scoop or reader diaries but, as Matt points out, “If you’re a fan of this site and want things to stay the same, you’ll just be able to click the URL, read posts, and the only thing different about it will be the design of the page.” That works for me.
