I heard today that my brilliant, lovely, and generous editor, Eleanor Barkhorn, is leaving The Atlantic for Vox.com. I'm absolutely bummed but thrilled for her, as she's going to be fantastic wherever she goes. We'd been working on a piece together, something we'd been discussing for a long time, and it seems fitting that it went live today, on the day she made her announcement.
Thank you, Eleanor. You have made me a better writer, a more organized thinker, and I will miss working with you so very, very much.
