Clueless, departing

Several months ago at my now-defunct (but similarly-named) first blog, it became my pleasure and my intimidation to read the superb work of Steven Den Beste at U.S.S. Clueless.

This remarkably fine writer covered a galaxy of subjects, then suddenly stopped cold. At first I thought it was just post-election burn-out. It was not.

Now comes the news that it's for real, Den Beste has in fact walked away from one of the most remarkable ongoing series of essays I've ever read. Rishon Rishon has more of the background, including den Beste's closing thoughts on a verbal voyage to the stars.

Bosun, render the salute. Pipe the Captain ashore.
