    Radley really is a true modern American hero. I am glad you guys picked him up as an editor/writer or whatever his job function is. He is our modern day Samuel Clemens or H.L. Mencken. I often fear for his safety. Pointing out that the Emperor wears no clothes has never been a safe avocation. Thank goodness that we have someone of such an intellectual caliber to speak on behalf of freedom loving folk.

    Good luck to Reason and Radley in all your future endeavors.

    Boo Radley is a true modern American hero? Maybe a hero to Scout. But all of modern America?

    * Best news article, for Senior Editor Radley Balko's "Guilty Until Proven Innocent."



    If the next four nominees aren't also articles by Radley Balko, then a "Magie" is a completely meaningless award.

    It's been three years since I paid for Reason. Every two or three months I get a letter in the mail saying my last issue is on the way, and if I don't renew soon my subscription will be no more. Yet they still keep delivering it for just $0.00 a year.

    ...not that I'm complaining! Go Radley!

    Couldn't have said it any better.
