The End. Kind of.

Welcome to my blog.

We’ll see how it goes.

Right now, it’s not as terrible as I thought it would be.

So, Cassandra has ended. It ran for five years and I’m ready to move on. (Not really but I don’t have a choice)

But I’ve got a NEW column. I’m excited.  Here it is on The Daily Beast.

I hope you will check it out. Same voice, different venue.



  1. I’m sure you’ll new column will be just as good as Cassandra; is it going to be under the same name, or will there be a renaissance of sorts?

    • No not the same name. Cassandra has ended. RIP.

  2. This is great. I was worried when I read your times column this week. Looking forward to your posts!

  3. Ariel, every sunday for the last three years I have read your column and I just found out that you will not continue to write it. Maybe it’s just another sign of these uncertain times: you cannot longer rely in your favorite sunday journalist… who am I going to read in Times now? certainly not Jeremy Clarkson. Maybe I’ll just stick with Finkelstein, he’s funny too…
    Let me say I enjoyed very much every single piece of word you have written. Sometimes I found myself repeating in conversations something you had written. I also shared some of your paranoia and fears (well, let’s face it, only some, no one can beat you… except perhaps Woody Allen and Howard Hughes). I will always remember December 2008 “Do you want to be my friend?”, that was certainly the best one… So, as a faithful reader, I would like to know how will we able to read more of you? please, keep us informed… take care!

    • Thank you so much for being such a loyal reader. Every Sunday? I’m impressed…. I will keep you informed. Promise.

  4. Hi Ariel
    I was also a regular reader of your Times articles. They were one of the great pleasures of each weekend. I’ve just read your Daily Beast article. How often will the new articles come out.

  5. The readers of the Daily Beast are obviously cut from a different material than the Times ones. I liked your text on SAD, but it would seem your new audience is, unfortunately, more American, and it tends to take everything literally.

    I hope your column survives!

  6. Yay! She’s here.

    – Ariel addict.
