Fishing Cycling'>Gone Fishing Cycling

Just to let you know that in 20 minutes I’m headed off for a 10 day almost-entirely device free vacation cycling through the south of France.

To be honest, during the redesign, I entirely lost track of the keys to the likker cabinet. But given that there’s healthy trash happening, I’m sure someone just stole them from me already.


Marcy has been blogging full time since 2007. She’s known for her live-blogging of the Scooter Libby trial, her discovery of the number of times Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was waterboarded, and generally for her weedy analysis of document dumps.

Marcy Wheeler is an independent journalist writing about national security and civil liberties. She writes as emptywheel at her eponymous blog, publishes at outlets including the Guardian, Salon, and the Progressive, and appears frequently on television and radio. She is the author of Anatomy of Deceit, a primer on the CIA leak investigation, and liveblogged the Scooter Libby trial.

Marcy has a PhD from the University of Michigan, where she researched the “feuilleton,” a short conversational newspaper form that has proven important in times of heightened censorship. Before and after her time in academics, Marcy provided documentation consulting for corporations in the auto, tech, and energy industries. She lives with her spouse and dog in Grand Rapids, MI.

    You’ll have to postpone until after the debate. I don’t watch/listen to the debates. Your live-tweeting them–especially GOP’s–is more fun and more informative.

      You might enjoy the live-blogging at the Great Orange Satan. Lots of snark, especially in the comment section.

    Have fun and be safe.

    I suspect that by the time you get back Biebs will be warming up under center, the Pats will be 4-0, and Fat Rex looking for a job.

    RIP Jose Fernandez. Marlins star pitcher killed in a boating accident. Only saw him on TV, but wow. He was young, but so fun to watch.

      A big portion of it is at the bottom of every page, including this one (even if it looks like the lower half of the moon!). This is a common comment, so we may reintegrate it more later.
