Philadelphia Weekly lets its funniest writer go

Dan McQuade, who wrote arguably the city's funniest blog Philadelphia Will Do, worked his last day at the Philadelphia Weekly today. McQuade, who was recruited by the alternative weekly because of the blog three years ago, also wrote a television column and general assignment stories for the paper. He wrote a farewell post on PWD twenty minutes ago, saying this was the end of the PW-version of his blog, which he will keep writing at "I hope I succeeded in my original goal: Lowering the productivity of the American office worker, at least a little," writes the Penn graduate, who also blogged the Summer Olympics in Beijing for Vanity Fair. "My only regret is that I didn't Twitter my exit interview," McQuade told us by e-mail this evening.
