About Today’s G-File

Unfortunately, there won’t be one.

Dear Reader (especially those of you disappointed in me),

For reasons I mostly blame Steve Hayes for, I could not get a G-File done today. I can’t begin to tell you how much I hate missing these obligations. I wish I could say it’s all about not disappointing my readers, but the truth is one of the main reasons I freak out about not filing is I’m terrified of writer’s block. I’m also terrified of venomous snakes and people who smell of cabbage, but that’s not relevant right now. For me, sticking to the habit of writing is how I avoid falling out of the habit. 

But enough about me—the reason I am writing this missive is that when I fail to file a G, as it were, people complain that they weren’t notified it’s not coming. So this email is sort of like the sound of one hand clapping: an email from me at the usual time notifying you that you won’t get an email from me at the usual time.

You will, however, get the solo Remnant on schedule (if that’s your bag). I managed to record that at a rest stop on I-95 on the drive back from New York. Nobody thought I looked weird doing that or anything. 

But seriously, my apologies. I promise all the tasteful nudity and trenchant cricket analysis you’ve come to expect from this “news”letter next week. 

Jonah Goldberg is editor-in-chief and co-founder of The Dispatch, based in Washington, D.C. Prior to that, enormous lizards roamed the Earth. More immediately prior to that, Jonah spent two decades at National Review, where he was a senior editor, among other things. He is also a bestselling author, longtime columnist for the Los Angeles Times, commentator for CNN, and a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. When he is not writing the G-File or hosting The Remnant podcast, he finds real joy in family time, attending to his dogs and cat, and blaming Steve Hayes for various things.
