Bid Farewell to The Dish

As tempting as it is, I will refrain from making any 'broken dish' puns (except for that one). For today is a sad day.

As tempting as it may be, I will refrain from making any ‘broken dish’ puns (except for that one). For today is a sad day.

This morning, Andrew Sullivan announced that not only will he be leaving The Dish, but the blog itself would be no more following Friday.

“We’re all only human. At some point, the marathon has to end…. But the simple truth is: all three co-owners of the site, me, Patrick Appel and Chris Bodenner, have come to the conclusion that the practical, financial and editorial challenges of continuing on are simply too great for us to bear as we are, let alone without me”

Sullivan signed off by telling readers, not to lose heart and instead celebrate the good times.

“And for the next few days, let’s celebrate. Let’s remember the highs and lows, the insanity and the wisdom, the humor and the deadly seriousness of what the Dish has created and spawned these past several years. Let’s remember what we created together and be glad. For we have something wonderful to be glad about.”

FishbowlDC bids adieu to The Dish and its writers. We will continue to enjoy and celebrate until week’s end.
