    Libertarianism as mental illness… that’s kind of funny. Seriously though, judging from the titles of the sessions highlighted in that post that seems like a mis-characterization. It really looks more like the Harvard conference is asking specific values questions (what value should we put on community vs. individual, what value should we put on wealth/output). Even if they go so far as to propose an answer different than free-market proponents would select that’s hardly tantamount to calling libertariansim mental illness.

    Also, are you ever going to put up a new blogroll? (Any chance I’d make the cut?) I’m wondering where you’ll put it… the new, larger font size makes it seem like an extensive blogroll would significantly displace daily links/recent comments/something else. Just curious…

    Yep, updating the blogroll is on my to-do list. I’ll probably put it on the left sidebar, maybe with a dropdown menu so it doesn’t take up too much space.

    Were you not on it before? If not, that was an accidental oversight. I’ll make sure you’re on the new one.
