SOON ENOUGH, HE'LL BE "THE" MATT YGLESIAS. As Matt embarks on his sabbatical to write the great American foreign policy manifesto, we here at TAP thank him for the years of terrific contributions, steadfast indulgence, and inspiration. So much as you know Matt as a relentlessly provocative and sharp writer, we know him as a cubicle mate, where he's that guy, only more so, and at a higher decibel level. The office won't be the same without him, and we'll all be anxiously reading his new, consolidated blog to get our fix. You should too. Even the basketball blogging.
