Readership is down, apathay is up. There's probably a connection there.
I've decided to quit blogging. Instead, I'm going to write a biweekly or monthly column for Chris O'Connor's BookTalk web community. The only activity here will be continuing updates to the Blogosphere Political Compass Project; eventually I'll change the name of the blog itself from "The Zoo" to "The BPCP". Archives and links will remain as they are for the time being, but they'll probably change at some point, too.
I'll post a link here when I start writing for BookTalk. Peace.
