I’m inordinately pleased to announce that my husband Paul will be posting on NoodleFood on occasion. Paul has his own blog GeekPress, but it’s not a suitable forum for philosophic posts. So I’m happy to lend him NoodleFood for his philosophical commentaries. He’ll be sure to fancy up the place with his well-deserved reputation for calm, thoughtful, and reasonable analysis.
Paul’s first commentary — posted is just below this one — concerns the morality of association with libertarian organizations. For the record, I agree with it wholeheartedly. In fact, it was an earlier version of his analogy that originally convinced me that David Kelley was wrong to speak to the Laissez Faire Supper Club.
I should mention, however, I do not sanction Paul’s non-standard punctuation, in which periods and commas are placed outside of quotation marks. It might be more consistent with the structure of the sentence, but it just looks funny. :-)
