So for the last 14 DAYS I have not read Matthew Yglesias's blog, an act which used to be as integral to my morning routine as eating a bagel with scallion cream cheese. This was started as a test of self-control and so far I am passing... barely. I have kept a log some of the my inner thoughts since then:
Day 1: Missing the educated liberal slant on the day's issues, but whatever I can get my fix elsewhere
Day 4: Early stages of withdrawal- the other blogs just won't do. My doctor tells me to try Ezra Klein, but it is too health care-y.
Day 6: Withdrawal starts to kick in. Having visions of occasional NBA content.
Day 9: Night sweats, need my fix of rants about the wonders of public transportation
Day 14: Full-on withdrawal, I am muttering to myself "Must have... assurances to libertarians that he's not a doctrinaire liberal... feed me... smug anti-gun-control posts"
But I'm hanging in there, just take it day by day.
