The End, For Now

Bellows readers, I am now posting at Please join me there.


  1. Ryan – I’ve been reading your posts at the new location, and I apologize for not commenting there.

    But wants my real name and street address before they’ll let me comment, and I’m allergic to handing that information out to people who don’t need it. I suspect I’m not the only one who feels that way.

    just heard the news – “Conde Nast says it is closing Portfolio magazine.” cf.

    sorry dude… maybe FS’ll take you on? in any event, keep blogging! whether here or elsewhere 😛

  3. bottomofthe9th says:

    My condolences, as well. Hope to continue reading your stuff, wherever that may be.

  4. Babe's Ghost says:

    Just read your last post at Portfolio and I can assure you, you won’t be missed.

    You don’t deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as Yves, much less run around criticizing her with your disingenous tripe.

    Let me spell it out for you.
    An unlimited no strings attached guarantee of the kind Geithner proposed is FAR WORSE than a no strings attached infusion of a large but limited amount of cash.

    Geithner had to be forced to even charge the banks for allowing them to rape the FDIC’s balance sheet.

    Clearly you’re just another tool soon to be looking for gainful employment. Good riddance.

  5. Reid Davis says:

    Yikes, Holy ill-timed career moves, Ryan. Hopefully you land on your feet and we get you back here soon.

  6. Doug says:

    A few observations from around the blogosphere: Ryan has been very gracious about all of this and many who know him have been indignant on his behalf. Obviously, this is a disappointing episode in a promising career.

    I wish Babe’s Ghost gainful employment, as well.

  7. BruceMcF says:

    I do wish that Ryan finds a way to get enough scratch to keep body and soul together, as well as enough time to restart the Bellows.
