For the record

We’ll post occasionally over the next two weeks, but we’ll mostly be spending our time watching stop-motion reindeer and stuck in airports, cursing the hub-and-spoke system. We’ve got some exciting plans for the new year — so even if you take a holiday break from thinking about journalism, we hope you’ll come back after the first of the year. (As always, our RSS feed is the best way to be notified every time we post something new.) Happy holidays.
