    I voted “let him have his rest” even though I’d love it if he did come back. His rants are what brought me to the site in the first place–I was relieved to hear a former Republican share my outrage at what what Bush was doing.

    An overwhelming majority of people want Doug back, and I count myself among those who voted “YES”.
    That said, I know that “what we want” as Blue readers and ranters isn’t necessarily what’s best.

    Had the question been “Do you WANT Doug to return” I would have still voted “YES” but I would like now to change my vote to “NO, he needs his rest”.

    I love Doug’s rants, but I also sense he really needs some serious R and R, so I voted to let him have his rest. I welcome him back when he is rested and ready, and not a minute before. Let the man have his sabbatical, darn it! He’s earned it.

    I have been following this site for at least 2 or 3 years,and this is the 3rd or 4th time that Doug has said Goodbye forever and ever,only to come back in relatively short periods of time.If Doug needs an extended break,let him have it with our blessings and the knowledge that Doug will NEVER walk away for good.
