Weekend Open Thread


To get you started, a blog called "Marry in Massachusetts" would like some advice.  It seems that this left-leaning fellow's mother has gone all right-wing on him, and as an "aggressive gift" bought him subscriptions for arch-neocon magazines like City Journal, Policy Review, and…that notorious right-wing rag called reason.

What should he do?  Cancel the subscriptions?  Forward them to his mother's address?  Politely ask her not to renew them? 

I can only speak for reason, but given that gay rights seems to be one of his pet issues, I'd suggest the guy start by, er, reading it.

I'm baffled as to why people still lump libertarians in with neocons.  I can't think of much of anything Bill Kristol and I agree on these days.
