One of our favorite Philly bloggers, Susie Madrak @ Suburban Guerrilla, is getting ready to take a break from blogging. Seems she’™s become a hired gun for Philadelphia mayoral candidate Tom Knox. That’™s certainly a good thing for Susie, but a loss for the Philly progressive blogging community. History has shown that when the better bloggers on the left get hired away by political campaigns, they rarely return (at least in their previous blog personas), so we at ASZ wish the best to Susie.

Suburban Guerrilla isn’™t going away – it’™s being turned over, at least temporarily, to a couple of Susie’™s compatriots.

Susie also writes via email that her normal site is down today, for a variety of technical reasons, and that the temporary home for SG can be found here. Never mind -it’™s fixed now’¦

Anyway, salud, Susie!

We also (sadly) note the apparent passing of Whiskey Bar, one of the blogs that originally inspired me to start All Spin Zone. Discussion of Billmon’™s decision to pull the plug can be found at Firedoglake and Moon of Alabama.

I could never (and wouldn’™t even try to) match Billmon’™s unique writing style, his research ability, or depth of knowledge on a stunningly wide variety of topics. When comments were still allowed on Whiskey Bar, I was a frequently posting member of the community. One of ASZ’™s original contributors, Kate Storm, came to ASZ via Whiskey Bar as well. Billmon’™s voice and perspective will be missed. I sincerely hope that he’™ll return in some future online incarnation.
