George Mason University, the libertarian mecca often sung in the pages of Reason, advances to the Final Four after edging out University of Connecticut, 86-84, in overtime. You could tell by all those three-pointers that this was a team organized on the wisdom of distributed decision-making rather than central control.
Or maybe not. Anyway, Reason interviews GMU prof Tyler Cowen here and Nobel Laureate Vernon Smith here. A biography of the original George Mason, the most prominent of the anti-federalists and an opponent of the Constitution's slavery compromises, here.
A bittersweet victory for Mike Alissi, former Reason publisher, now a mysterious Adnan Khashoggi-type fixer for the Reason Foundation, and a U Conn alumnus. The battle between his alma mater and America's libertarian oasis briefly set Alissi's Vulcan and human halves at war.
