One big holiday

June 25, 2008

Having taken the Water Wiennies and the Jarts out of the closet, now seems like an ideal time to put Rough Type on ice for the summer. Posts will be rare for a spell.


Let me be the first to express my concern; the mental picture of you with Wiennie in hand doesn’t quite work!

My morning ritual, RT browsing, will be a loss. Your insight wit and nonsense and your contributors comments will be missed.

Have some fun, Alan
