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.
