Brushes with fame
He's a very cool dude. We talked for a few hours (until I had to beg off to go to bed), mostly, naturally, about things political: the various strains of libertarianism and anarchism, some interesting writers, the types of research he's doing now, and so on.
I rarely write to people whose columns I've read. If I do, usually the best response I get is a cordial Thank You, if any response at all. I just wanted to give props to a dude who, in addition to writing some excellent material, is just a nice guy, despite his well-deserved fame.
