Congratulations are in order
Please join me in congratulating League blogger (and Outside the Beltway blogger, and Forbes blogger) Alex Knapp who has just accepted a full-time position with Forbes magazine. This is seriously awesome and I’m happy for Alex and Forbes who both, I believe, made out like bandits. Congratulations, Alex!
