Aaaaaand, that's a wrap

Well folks, it's with a ton of regret that I have to inform you that, after eleven years, The Colossus of Rhodey is shutting up shop. You've likely noticed that posting has been quite minimal of late; that's because my writing duties elsewhere have been required.

For any future pontifications regarding comics, movies, politics, etc. you can now find me at Douglas Ernst's place.

Thank you for reading, and for all your support over the last decade-plus. All the best.

-- Hube

Very sad to hear that, Hube, but I figured this was going to happen because of your commitments elsewhere. That, and I noticed you weren't posting as often as you once did. I've enjoyed your blog for the past six years (I discovered it via your Newsbusters column) and wish you nothing but the best.

Take care, my friend. Good luck with your future endeavors.

Great run. Congratulations and I wish you the best. Like Carl said, I'm sad to see you go. You've provided an invaluable blog and you are one of the originals.

Wait, what? I just got fired?

You will be a writer on Douglas' blog?
Sad to see your site go.

Many thanks, everyone. I appreciate the kind words.

Fred: You can read my (regular education) stuff over at The College Fix. I will occasionally write about other stuff over at Doug Ernst's place, as noted.

Chibi: Yep. See above. :-)

Duff: Considering that our output has been reduced to slim-to-none this past month (and previous months), I think it's best. Drop me a line if you'd like to continue solo.

It is sad, but I am sure you will continue other great things. Feel free to visit and post at anytime!

There is a part of me that is really sad to see this moment come to pass, but another that is doing a happy dance that your work will now be closer than ever.

You've been an inspiration, Hube.

See ya around, Hube.

Good luck on your new job, Hube.
