The Seattle Times has a new political blog. Politics Northwest will be written by the Times political team.
I hope you all will become regular readers and commenters and help maintain the (mostly) civil tone we've had here.
This is the last thing I'll write for The Seattle Times. I also have a story in the paper today. It's about "Battle in Seattle," the new movie about the WTO protests.
I will be turning in my badge and
gun cell phone today. I want to thank all most of you for helping to make Postman on Politics a success. There were many doubters when we went live in May of 2006. Some people said a blog without political opinion wouldn't work. Others said a blog that didn't allow curse words wouldn't work.
But it did work. And that's in large part a credit to those who came here each day to read and the smaller group that regularly left comments. I also appreciate the bloggers who linked to PoP as well.
It's strange to think that at the close of business tomorrow I won't be a journalist -- at least not for the next phase of my life.
I want to keep writing because when I hit "Publish" on this I'm done. But I'll resist the urge to filibuster.
Thank you all. It's been great.
