The Motorhome Diarists are out of jail and preparing to sue the pants off the cop gang that kidnapped them; details here and here.
In related news, Charles Johnson (in his Molinari Institute t-shirt) talks briefly with the Diarists about agorism here:
Wow, Charles Johnson has changed a lot since his NCAA/NFL days. He used to be black:
The president of the Flat Earth Society was black? I did not know dat.
No, no, I was never a football player. I used to be black, of course, but that was back when I was an acclaimed novelist. However, I eventually came to regret my ill-conceived criticism of The Color Purple.
You were one of the great college receivers of all time. However, you lacked a degree of explosiveness — Isaac Bruce had such explosiveness and was the same size as you — to succeed brilliantly at the NFL level.
Is that really radgeek? He looks tons cooler in real life than one might guess.

Since I knew him in real life before I knew him online, I can’t judge how cool he would be expected to look from his blog alone.
you guys and yer’ beards….
I think it’s a requirement that as you become an anarchist the more leftish you are the larger your beard. Compare for example Murray Rothbard to Roderick Long to Peter Kropotkin.
You are correct: proudhon was slightly more pro-market and property than Bakunin, and consequently had a thin beard compared to Bakunin. Bakunin, meanwhile had a less bushy beard than Kropotkin!
What about Lysander Spooner?
What about Emma Goldman?
Well Spooner hobnobbed with Mr. Occupancy-and-Use, and I guess we could restrict the claim to male anarchists. The process of identifying peculiar identifying features of left vs right female anarchists I leave as an exercise to the reader.
So are we to account for Lenin and Trotsky’s goatees, or Stalin’s mustache?
Whoops, read that wrong. I thought you said “as you become more anarchist and more leftish”
Don’t forget about Karl Hess, too.
Finally, the “left-libertarian”/”right-libertarian” split decided once and for all. 🙂
