Reason on the Boob Tube Saturday (Charlton Heston Allusion Edition)


Hey, that's not Corey Feldman on the ultimate reality TV show, The Lehrer NewsHour. It's Contributing Editor Michael Young, who runs the op-ed page at Lebanon's Daily Star and has filled our pages with excellent, on-the-street analysis about the Middle East. Go here for a transcript, streaming audio, and streaming video.

And on the cable dial, tomorrow on C-SPAN's BookTV at 10:30AM, you can check out Reason's own Omega Man, Ronald Bailey, talking up "The State of Science Journalism."

And who's that moderatin' the gabfest, which also features The American Prospect's Chris Mooney and American Enterprise Institute's Sally Satel? Let's just say it's not a newscaster turned mutant hippie who spouts great lines like, "Definition of a scientist: A man who understands nothing until there was nothing left to understand."

NEXT: Stop Making That Orfful Noise

  1. Let me put the power to him. Just a little nitro baby!

  2. Mister, are you God?

  3. So far only two Omega Man references, huh? I’ll add a third:

    That’s 100 Proof anglo-saxon, baby!

  4. If you want your readers to watch a particular TV program, say “All My Children” or something, you post to the blog and tell us what day and time the show you want us to see is on. But you have to tell us at least a full waking day before the show is scheduled to be on. There was this one guy, Nick Gillespie, who was always suggesting shows that had already played, or would play in just a few hours. He couldn’t quite grasp the idea that the readers couldn’t just make it be yesterday for him, turn back time ha ha. What a fruitcake!!

    (Okay, that was pathetic, but seriously, more notice would be great. I visited Hit&Run around 7pm yesterday, and 6pm today, but that wasn’t often enough to catch the announcement!)

  5. Hello, I am looking for future, present or past law school students to help create a blog to provide resources for law students. If anyone out there that would like to help, send me some mail or check out the beta:
