See You in September — I’m on Maternity Leave!
Greetings loyal readers.
This is a friendly public service announcement to let you know that I will be on maternity leave for 12 weeks beginning tomorrow. I’ll be back to a somewhat regular schedule, hopefully still able to form complete sentences, when September rolls around.
In the meantime, we’re very lucky to have veteran Streetsblog USA editor Tanya Snyder filling in, writing daily headline round-ups along with Katie Pearce and posting a few items every week. Tanya has just recently given birth to a baby of her own (her second) so take it easy on her! And if you have any tips, email her at tanya [at] streetsblog [dot] org.
I’m grateful to all our readers and the crew here at Streetsblog, and I’m looking forward to a little uninterrupted time with my first born. (It’s a boy.)
Coincidentally, the timing of this birth aligns nicely with the latest extension of the federal transportation bill expires. Anyone want to take a guess how old junior will be by the time Washington passes a long-term bill?
