First, the good news: I'm adding Ta-Nehisi Coates to my blogroll. I first saw him when he was guest-blogging at Matt Yglesias' place, and since then he's started popping up all over -- always with good stuff to say. So welcome aboard.
The sad news: dNa of Too Sense is calling it quits. This is particularly sad for me, as I only recently started reading his blog, but it was rapidly becoming a favorite. I'm not deleting it from the 'roll yet, because the site may stay active via a co-blogger, but it's still a sore loss for the blogosphere.
