    Le Batard discusses his leave of absence in his Sunday column. He admits that his column "has lacked life for a while now".

    Good for him. He's fortunate he has the opportunity to take time off like that. Best of luck to him.

    The comment section for that article was hilarious.

    Congrats to Dan, and nice of the Herald and WWL to give him the time away.

    If more papers did that, judiciously of course, the results might be better. Time away and change can be good.

    What was the name of that country tune?

    "How can I miss you if you won't go away?"

    I refer back to the prevailing opinion of a month ago when his leave of absence was first disclosed. If DLB hadn't been so busy turning himself into a multimedia corporation he wouldn't have needed to recharge his batteries.

    Doing everything he did no doubt contributed to, or caused, his desire to take a break.

    But you also don't have to be doing 27 things to realize you need a break to reassess your life and get things in order.
