The Wisdom of Weisman

The Godfather is retiring.

Well, not really. But Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts has announced he's taking an indefinite hiatus from daily Dodger blogging, which comes as a bummer but not a surprise if you saw the writing on the wall.

As a serial overreactor, I'll miss my dose of Jon's consistent rationality, but I take comfort that when he does decide to chime in, he'll have the benefit of hindsight...or at least a few weeks of bitching and moaning by Dodger fans once the team falls out of contention.

So, Jon Weisman: Thank you for an insanely disciplined and profoundly fruitful run in a medium that lends itself to oversaturation and burnout. Thank you for leading the way. I hope you find freedom in easing your burden, and I hope you find other outlets for dealing psychologically with all that other stuff.
