I'm happy to announce officially what Hit & Run readers already know: David Weigel has joined the staff of Reason as an assistant editor. A D.C.-area-based journo, he's been blogging for the better part of a week and he's already contributed some excellent articles to the mag in the past (such as When Patriots Dissent: Surprise: Standing up to the PATRIOT Act can be good politics and Welcome to the Fun-Free University: The return of in loco parentis is killing student freedom). Go here for a list of more Reason-related scribblings.
Dave graduated from Northwestern a few years ago and has worked for USA Today and Campaigns & Elections. He blogs here. Welcome aboard Dave!
And just so no one is confused: Reason is still looking to expand its staff by hiring an assistant editor. Details here.
