My Name Ith Lythander Thpooner And I’m From Athol, Mathachuthetth

Lysander SpoonerTomorrow morning I’m off to Boston for a Liberty Fund conference on Lysander Spooner, organised by Randy Barnett. We’re reading extensive selections from Spooner’s The Unconstitutionality of Slavery, The Unconstitutionality of the Laws Prohibiting Private Mails, No Treason, Natural Law, and Letter to Grover Cleveland. Among the secondary sources included in the readings packet I was pleased to see both my own Spooner article and the reply from Randy to J. H. Huebert that I originally solicited for the JLS.

In other news, when McCain first chose Palin as his running mate, I described the pick as “fiendishly brilliant.”

I take it back.

    Well, choosing Palin did seem “fiendishly brilliant” at the time.

    I actually regret that I won’t be able to catch tonight’s VP debate. Should be funnier than a debate between Moe and Curly of the 3 Stooges.

    I would love to be a fly on the wall in that conference.

    They decided Gothmog needed Eowyn as a sidekick to be more marketable. If Saruman-of-one-color is the opponent, then which LOTR character is Joe Biden?

    Did that post go through?

    Ha, I can see it now. “Biden, you needn’t serve this creature of statism. You were once a man! Come back to the light….”
