A Small Victory's Michele Catalano has decided to throw in the towel after almost half a decade of blogging (that's around a century in blog years). If you haven't been reading Michele regularly then 1) you are stupid or misguided, and 2) you missed one of the most engaging and entertaining writers the blogosphere has yet produced.
I hope that the strength she showed in kicking her nicotine habit isn't enough to keep her away from blogging. If she does manage to resist the urge to come back, though, I hope she's as successful in whatever she sets her mind to next as she was at ASV. I hope that she and her family remain happy and healthy, and I hope to see her turn up in the comments occasionally - keeping a watchful eye on us kids.
p.s. Michele, you just ruined an otherwise excellent weekend, damn you.
