Urban Elephants, the first-read local Republican news bulletin board, which hasn’t been active in some time, is no more.

The founder of the site, Republican true-believer Scott Sala, told me in an email last night that “one cannot continue to ‘blog’ for free to help the causes of others who benefit (elected, etc).”

Combined with Karol Sheinin getting a day job that’s occupying most of her time, Sala’s move seems to leave something of a void in the area of city-based, right-leaning blogs.

Anyway, here’s Sala’s full email.

“We’re taking the site down. Been on life support for a while. Just no time to deal with it, somewhat of a lack of purpose, and truthfully one cannot continue to "blog" for free to help the causes of others who benefit (elected, etc). At some point, I needed to benefit, and nothing came about. So I’m stepping back, refocusing, thinking about ideas, etc.”
