The shrinking axis

It is with no small amount of sadness that I note the news that Michael Croft and Ginger Stampley will be leaving Houston in the very near future for the metro New York area. Their departure means that the Greater Heights Area Axis of Left-Leaning Bloggers will be down to three members (Ted, Rob, and me). Thankfully, the Greater Houston Area Axis of Left-Leaning Bloggers has grown considerably over the past two years.

The sadness I feel is for myself as I see these two good friends of long standing move away. I’m very happy for Michael and Ginger, who are about to embark on a grand adventure. Our loss is very much your gain, New York.

  1. Friends Moving Northeast

    As highlighted on one of their fellow Houstonians, what is Houston’s loss will be New Jersey’s gain, as Ginger and Michael will be moving from the Gulf Coast…to the East Coast. I have lots of friends and acquaintances up in…

    You should merge with the Deer Park/Clear Lake Bloggers Association of Maximum Coolness.

    Admittedly, we have only one member, but I’m quite charming.

  3. Hmm. I don’t think of Deer Park and Clear Lake being all that close together. But I’m an inside-the-loop kind of guy, so what do I know? Anyway, send me the membership forms and I’ll sign right up.

    As one of the New Yorkers who will get that gain, I must say I’m quite pleased. Perhaps getting them up there will help me to get more active in my blogging again, and we can create the “ex-pat Texans living in the NYC metro area left-leaning bloggers” contingent. (Though I will spend some time thinking of a less clunky title for us.)

    Wow – an influx of foreigners.

    We’ll try to be worthy.
