As For Michael Kelly, Let Me Say This About That

I am compelled to add that while I won't miss Michael Kelly's Atlantic, I do miss his voice. I often disagreed with his analysis, and frequently winced at the schoolyard tone of his editorial taunts, but one thing was very clear from his writing for The Atlantic: the man had an exceedingly, dare I say, sensitive moral centre to his being. It's truly unfortunate we are deprived of his witness to the events in Iraq - and in Washington, for that matter.
