However, it seems that Tom Alday has decided to stop doing Alday Net:
I’m done with it. I can’t find the time to 1.) search for interesting political news, and 2.) post about it and make witty comments. I’ve had enough o’ this shit. I’m burnt out on political blogging for now. It was a good run, almost 4 years. I laughed, I cried, I shit my pants and made fun of retards. Good times.
RIP indeed, Alday.
