andrew-4.jpeg If you’ve been missing your dose of The Atlantic’s Andrew Sullivan and his “The Daily Dish” blog, don’t despair. He returns next week.

After running a rather deep tome about how travel gives us distance from our problems, he tells us about the subs who will be filling in for him:

“On that note, I’m handing over the Dish for the next week to the capable hands of Patrick and Chris who will be joined by Conor Friedersdorf, who needs no intro, and Andrew Sprung…. It’s been an amazing year at the Dish and exhausting too. See you December 21.”

The substitute writers (in case you didn’t know their full names) include: Patrick Appel, a senior editor, Chris Bodenner, a staff editor, Conor Friedersdorf, a journalist who formerly wrote an ideas blog at The Atlantic Monthly and Andrew Sprung, a guest writer on Sullivan’s blog.
