Well, Zoners, I guess this is just about it. My second to last post. I still have to post the interview with Stephen, which will happen tomorrow. And yes, you will definitely love this interview. But this post is for me to talk to all of you for a while, one last time, through the medium of this site.
My goodness, what a long, strange trip it’s been. I may have had to fall off the blog lately (work and lots of overseas travel sucked up my time), but you people have been a huge part of my life for almost four and a half years now — unbelievable!
So how, I thought to myself, can I possibly come up with anything like a coherent post with which to say goodbye? Answer: I can only go back to the beginning (well, sort of). I’d been watching the show since the debut episode, when I busted out laughing at the over-the-top credits and didn’t stop until the end. But you know how it goes with Stephen: you find the show, you love it, you watch it religiously, and after a while you drive your friends nuts with the constant references. (To paraphrase Sarah Vowell — you know that Kevin Bacon game? Well, I was like that with The Colbert Report; talking to me on any subject would invariably lead back to him before long.) And then you get tickets to the show, you meet Stephen, and the real whirlwind begins!
I’ve been sincerely touched while reading all of those of you who have talked about how much your Zoner friends have meant to you. This post is a place for you to exchange user names and online contact info so that everyone can keep in touch.
I’ve been holding onto my ‘Welcome Jesus’ T-shirt since this site started in July 2006, and now I finally get to wear it! We’re closing down shop in anticipation of the return of Christ – and we’ve scored an interview with Stephen Colbert for our final post here at No Fact Zone!

You may have noticed that our posting frequency has been way down the last week or so, and that the template is a bit wonky. We’ve been working diligently behind the scenes to get everything cleaned up and functioning, and posting frequency should get back to normal here very soon, including episode guides and the normal news goodies you would expect from us. Thank you for your patience, and we’ll keep everyone updated!
