I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

See Ya Porter

So Porter Goss has suddenly resigned, key word suddenly. Joe Gandelman has a good summary of what we know which isn't much. I just have this observation, we haven't heard the last of it. As I said the key word is suddenly. No replacement and the resignation was effective immediately. And why would the administration bump a drugs-cars-Kennedy story off the top of the page? They had to be in a hurry. The only question is why and right now we don't know although I'm sure Porter has a number skeletons in his closet any one of which could have suddenly tumbled out. I don't think we will have to wait long since the administration was in such a hurry to put Porter behind them. And what does Bill Kristol know?
"Something happened," neo-conservative magazine editor William Kristol said on Fox News this afternoon. "It's going to be a bad few days. We're going to discover something ... It will be something not good for the Bush Administration."

Fox News actually got a phone call from a "top White House official" during Kristol's damning comments, and Kristol was cut off so Bush mouthpiece Chris Wallace could say the Goss resignation is just a harmless part of the "White House shakeup." Sure.
