Re: The Anti-Liberty Spectator

I find that study especially ironic, given that I not only favor drug legalization and legalized gambling, but actually grew up in Atlantic City with a father in the casino business, and spent three summers working for casinos myself. I don’t think you could find many commentators who are more in the pocket of the gaming industry than I am, and yet my checks still seem to clear at the Spectator. I don’t write about drugs and gambling –not because I am intimidated by the powers that be — but because I am more concerned with greater threats to liberty posed by socialism and Islamic terrorism. At a time when we face the possibility of the federal government nationalizing banks and taking over the healthcare system, and the prospect of a nuclear Iran, delving into an esoteric debate about prostitution seems rather quaint.
