Brian Doherty: The LAist interview

|

Los Angeles based news, entertainment, and general fun chatter regarding local goings-on site LAist (edited by local superblogger Tony Pierce) interviews me on the day of my L.A. book store appearance about my new book Radicals for Capitalism: A Freewheeling History of the Modern American Libertarian Movement. Now the results are up , and I think it turned out nicely enough. The accompanying picture up top was taken at, yes, Burning Man.

  3. My friends had Perry Farrell give them a bunch of money to buy new tires because the dipshits drove over the spikey things* at some parking lot when they were on a road trip in LA.

    *You know, the things that are in some parking garages and parking lots where you can’t go the wrong way without having all 4 tires shredded.

  4. Some say the end is near.
    Some say we’ll see armageddon soon.

    I sure could use a vacation from this
    Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
    Freaks here in this hopeless fucking hole
