Ken McCracken Farewell Tour.

There's good news and bad news in the world of WILLisms.com.

The bad news: Ken McCracken is leaving WILLisms.com. His farewell tour begins today, so be sure to show him the love. Ken will certainly be missed around here. He's been a fantastic contributor here for roughly two years now, and while I have ebbed and flowed in my posting volume over that time, he has been a steady font of interesting and thought-provoking material. Ken has amazing artistic talent, great political instincts, and a gift for funneling vast amounts of complicated information into succinct and compelling packets.

Ken'll judge this week's Caption Contest and is welcome to make posts here as long as he wants, as he transitions into... (and this is the good news)

The good news: Ken will once again start up his own blog, so you'll still be able to read his classy original content. Formerly, Ken posted at Am I A Pundit Now? blog, but I look forward to seeing his new blog venture whenever it is operational.

Thanks, Ken. We look forward to blogrolling your new blog once you get it up and running.

Ken Adds: Thanks for putting up with me here folks. I was never able to fill Will's shoes here, and that is one reason I decided to leave. I don't want this to become 'my' site in Will's absence, because it just isn't my site and never will be.

I'll have the URL for my new blog when it is ready, I hope people will come by and pay a visit.

Good luck, Ken. Thanks for the great posts. I'm sure Say Anything will miss your insight, as well.

Thanks Hoodlumman.

I hope you'll come by the new blog when its up and ready - I cleared it with Rob, I will be allowed to crosspost there so, see you at Say Anything!

I have always enjoyed your posts and comments. Looks like I will have to add another blog to my favorites.

Posted by: Eneils Bailey at October 2, 2007 01:50 PM

NO WAY! Ken? Ken? Ken? Why? WHY? Why? I Love You, Ken! XOoo You are REALLY going to be missed around here...

You mean I have to click twice now? Screw that.

Posted by: Assistant Village Idiot at October 2, 2007 10:00 PM

Aw man... well, enjoy your new home, Ken! You were a fine and welcome addition to this site, at least from the viewer's side. I look forward to seeing you around in the comments, and I'll look for your new site. I'm sure you'll earn a place in my dailies!

Now the hard part begins: Coming up with the winning Caption!

Come Back, Ken!...

Aw, nuts. I mean, aw, nuts.

Nice work here, Ken. WILLisms will miss you, but I'm going to blogroll your new site ASAP. Good luck.
