So we here at CT face the end of an era as Daniel heads over to Treasury. Daniel, Rich, and I founded Common Tragedies after realizing that we read a lot of blogs and were seeking a way to force our opinions on the public an informal intellectual outlet. Daniel has often been the driving force of this blog and put in a lot of effort to attract our current readership by writing intelligent posts and connecting us with other bloggers through comments and links. It’s been a pleasure discussing potential posts and research in the context of the blog and RFF, but also getting to know you as a friend.
Basically, thank you Daniel, for helping to shape a forum in which I can post cow fart jokes and know that they are read by many people that I will never meet.
