Whither the Defeatist?
Does anybody else read The Defeatist? He seems to have dropped off the face of the earth. His blog is still up, but all posts have been removed. Does anyone know what happened?
The Defeatist is a dour guy. You can get a general idea of his attitude toward the world not only by his moniker, but also by his answer to one of Blogger's silly profile questions:

No. It is best to accustom one's self to the inevitable death and destruction of beauty at an early age, don't you think?
Defeatist, if you're out there, give us a shout!
