With a JetBlue Ticket

So I just booked my flight -- on September 21st, I'll be moving out to DC. I'll spend a few days tracking down an apartment, getting myself settled, and then, on Monday the 26th, I'll be starting at The American Prospect.

So this is how Real Life starts, huh?

Congratulations and good luck. I look forward to reading your tips on panning for gold. Wait, that's The American Prospector.

Good luck!

Yep. Then it's all downhill from there.

Where will you be house hunting? If you're interested in a place outside of the belt, try down our way in Southern Maryland. It's a bit of a commute, but a pretty place to live.

Actually, D.C. isn't real life. It exists almost completely disconnected from reality. Then again, I'm from Minnesota, so who am I to talk?

Posted by: Bedouin | Sep 6, 2005 2:30:05 PM

You poor deluded fool. That's how it begins. Within 6 months you'll be talking like a Washington insider and lunching with Bob Woodward.

Will a White House press pass and a nude photos on your own escort service web site be far behind?

Nah, I already got those out of the way -- how do you think I got this job? God knows it wasn't my writing "talent".

Well, there goes the neighborhood.

God bless, good luck, keep in touch, don't ever change, you're the best, have a great summer, call me, friends forever, ANTHRAX!!!, hey remember that one party, that one where the dude was all, and you hit him for looking at your girlfriend but it wasn't really her? that was awesome! Stay cool!

Don't buy any lunchroom passes from Yglesias.

You're going to miss the worst of the insane D.C. humidity. Good timing. Welcome, the spare key's under the mat.

Congratulations, Ezra.

Don't forget to take lots of pictures of the process of moving (both ends) and starting the new job. Not many years from now you will want to pictorially re-live 'your first post-college' job.

Have a great trip and congratulations on achieving what many could only fantasize about for a first job.

i'm jealous of your job, but DC truly sucks for anyone under 30. it's an angry city,full of angry drivers who hate bicyclists, a massive police-security-paranoia complex that prevents you from leaving suvway cars at certain times and includes barricades EVERYWHERE; terrible nightlife (you have whitebread adam's morgan and maybe a little bit of dupont, and ok, columnia heights has a little wonderland and whatever); no fun day-after-hangover-breakfast places and not ONE good music store in the whole city. add to that that you live 6 miles from george dubya, and it turns out to be a REAL treat to live there. come to newyork soon, we'll be glad to have you here instead.

Good luck!

Great news! DC can be "white bread" and annoying at times but overall it's a nice place to be. Hope you enjoy it.

Well, welcome to the neighbo...er, region. I'm just down the road in Richmond, and there are a few people I've been meaning to visit up in DC. If we can get a blogger dinner together, I certainly hope you'd consider coming.

I kinda doubt the Capital of the Confederacy is really your thing, but if you'd ever like a tour of Richmond, drop me a line.

Posted by: Jon Henke | Sep 6, 2005 7:39:17 PM

Good luck, Ezra! I lived in DC for ten years and had a great time. I'm sure you will, too.

Posted by: RJ Eskow | Sep 6, 2005 8:35:50 PM

All the best to you. Young citizens that care are the future hope for my democratic party. We need honest voices who can communicate to the country the facts - to offset the spin and the lies we are being bombarded with from this administration and their enablers.
I can tell by reading this blog that you are one of the good guys. Just keep caring, and writing so well - I feel that big things are in store for you, sir.

All I want to know is where and when is the party?

God Luck!

Posted by: SteveAudio | Sep 6, 2005 10:57:40 PM

Oops, I meant Good luck.

Posted by: SteveAudio | Sep 6, 2005 10:58:32 PM

All the best Ezra...I look forward to watching your progress over the years--I'm astounded by your accomplishments so far!

Posted by: Steve Mudge | Sep 6, 2005 11:54:57 PM

Best of luck Ezra.

I've enjoyed reading you the last year and a half or so - especially since you've been on your own.
