Remembering the Alamo
It's off to San Antonio tomorrow morning, to attend the Freedom Communications Inc. Freedom School. The company that owns the Register (and about 27 other papers and a half-dozen TV stations) has one of these events every 12-18 months, mostly for editors and editorial writers to get a little refresher course in libertarian thought, and with any luck ways to apply it to the kinds of issues that arise in communities as well as nationally and internationally. Tibor Machan, who's now teaching at Chapman U. in Orange, and is an adviser on freedom issues to Freedom Inc., puts these events together. The main speakers this yhear will be Jonathan Rauch (I've read him for years but never met him), Ed Crane, Tom Palmer and Timothy Sandefur. I'm very much looking forward to it. Should be gone through Thursday but plan to find some time to blog.
