Oh, Yeah...

...I'm back.

Along with the duck and the mallet.

As wonderful as the Contentions gig was, I simply couldn't sustain it. It became too much like work. It was too serious. It was too responsible.

Oh, I enjoy doing that, but I need more.

I need to write angry, hypernationalist pieces like "Trophies." I want to write personal, irritated pieces like "You Should Know I've Killed A Lot Of Old People In My Time, And I'm Not Above Doing It Again." I want to get ultra-partisan and write "Why Aren't You Dead Yet, You Oxygen-Thieving Waste Of Skin?"

But with the exclusivity part of my agreement with Contentions, I couldn't write them.

(Oh, great, now I actually gotta WRITE those.)

Anyway, folks, I missed you -- commenters and colleagues alike. As for my new colleagues... I look forward to sharing column-space with you all.

And thanks for leaving the WELCOME mat out for me, Kevin.

Welcome back Jay Tea. You were greatly missed. Now I can relax and stop being so snarky on my site. In your honor, I have called our nation's Chief Executive a clueless baboon at least once!

A hearty, hearty WELCOME BACK to you, Jay Tea. We have missed you!! Well, at least I have. Far be it from me to presume the right to speak for the masses, after all.

Good Deal. Welcome back Mr. Tea from over Thayer. You have been missed.

Now for Van Jones conspiracy mode. There are serious questions to be asked and answered.

How long has this been in the works?

What did you know about the cancellation of Wizbang Blue and when did you know it?

Are you now or have you ever been Lee Ward?

Good to see you Mr.T. Your anchoring tone amidst the daily chords and discords has been sorely missed. I especially appreciate the return of the Hammer whose contributions in the realm of civil discourse are legend here. The hair upon the neck of every troll is on its end.

Yay!!!... (Below threshold)

Now that nobody is on my lap... I'd seen you disappear from the other gig and finally thought to e-mail you. Then I realized I could Google and see if you'd gone on to something else, or popped up elsewhere as alive and kicking. It was a "duh" moment when your new posts here came up. The place wasn't the same without you, though if Kevin himself posts a lot that helps. Between that and generally more limited blog reading, I'd not been here that much, so not stumbled on your posts that way. Glad you're back!
