More of yesterday’s news

Back in December I had an op-ed about the D. C. school voucher proposal in The Free Liberal, a new libertarian magazine that’s distributed on several college campuses in the D. C. area. It’s now available on the TFL weblog. (In a presumably unrelated development, the Senate passed the final version of the voucher bill just a few days ago).

Two of my fellow interns were also published in this issue. Court says “Mr. President, economics before politics, please” and California Tommy demands “Decentralize our forests!

    Vouchers are an interesting idea (although I really doubt they’ll doing anything to kick public schools into gear).

    I researched private school tuitions in D.C. It looks like $7,500 doesn’t actually give these families that many choices, especially at the high school level.

    The first one on the list really bugs me… my federal tax dollars could potenitally be bankrolling a “heathen” surcharge. Yecch.
