I was perusing Wizbang! absentmindedly this Sunday evening, as the Patriots were losing blowing it against the Steelers, with way too many second half turnovers, dropped passes and soft defenses, and I noted an oblique reference to the "loss" of Jay Tea. I've been terribly busy with work and a variety of other projects lately, and my blogging has been sporadic (and my reading of blogs even moreso.) Still, I was puzzled that this news had gotten past me. Jay is a fellow Granite Stater, and a superb blogger, putting far more thought into his posts than any seven bloggers combined. He once surprised me by dropping his Wizbang!calling card at my desk while, I believe, seeing one of my partners at the office. While I don't agree with him on everything, he and I do agree on many things. And even in those disagreements I certainly found that he gave a topic full and thorough consideration before discussing his conclusions.
Commentary Magazine's blog Contentions has snapped him up. They wanted him exclusively, and so Wizbang is a much more empty place. Congratulations, I wish you well in your new gig. And remember, J.T., you're always welcome as a commenter at Joust The Facts.
