Like Jay-Z or Too $hort, I was in temporary semi-retirement for a while there. Well, not quite: actually I spent the Christmas and New Year seasons in Texas and have now moved to Wilmington, Delaware. While I haven’t blogged for a while, I haven’t been completely idle. My take on “liberaltarianism” is in the current (Jan. 29, 2007) issue of The American Conservative. I have a couple of reviews pending at other publications — I’ll mention them once they’re safely in print.
