SMG/Sb Ethical Lapse Claims Another 'SciBling'

tags: , , , , , ,

I am greatly saddened to be able to tell you finally that my friend and colleague -- no, former colleague -- Bora Zivkovic, is leaving ScienceBlogs for good. I suspected and then knew for the past week and a half that this was coming, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that I am deeply, deeply upset. So upset that I am really not able to talk about it. But in short, Bora is like a brother to me and since I've no family to speak of (until a few short months ago, when my real-life brother contacted me), Bora was the closest person to a brother I've ever had. I am sure you will want to continue reading his blog, so be sure to change your blogroll to include Bora's independent site at wordpress.

Grrrl, thank you so much! Once sciblings, always sciblings, wherever we may end up.

Yes, I must say the thing I miss the most about leaving science blogs is you and Bora...

Does that make me your sister or an outlaw?
