About a week ago, the great uterus hunter and writer Andrew Sullivan announced that he was quitting blogging, but he left the future status of “The Dish” and its employees up in the air.

Well, not anymore. Sullivan just posted in a “Note to my readers” that the three co-owners of “The Dish” have decided that once Sullivan leaves, it makes no sense to keep the site up and running.

Sullivan, of course, has quit blogging before only to return:

We’ll just have to wait and see if the “The Dish” really shuts down on Friday or if there’s some last-minute reprieve for the site.

And any bets on Sullivan’s last post? Sadly, this is probably true:

Eek.
