Klein leaves the Washington Post. Memo:
When Ezra joined us in 2009, he was a wunderkind blogger with brash confidence and a burning desire to write a column in the print newspaper. As he leaves us, Ezra is still a brash wunderkind, but now his burning desire has a grander scope: He is looking to start his own news organization, an ambition that befits someone with uncommon gifts of perception and analysis.
Thanks to the @WashingtonPost for five incredible years. An amazing newsroom and an amazing institution.
