the rest is silence

One of the most literate and prolific bloggers around, Andrew Sullivan also articulates a brand of green conservatism. But in the last couple of days, Sullivan's blog has gone almost silent - leaving just a few tantalising clues. One is a quote from Wittgenstein (which translates as 'What we cannot speak of we must pass over in silence'), a second is a picture of a sunset, and a third is a clip from Desperate Housewives, where a small boy called Andrew is forced by his mother to apologise to a neighbour. There's feverish speculation among his fans that Sullivan's heated attacks on Sarah Palin have led to calls from his employers at Atlantic Monthly for an apology. And Sullivan won't.
Lunchtime update: 7.27am (his time), and he's back.
