POSTREL ON HAYEK AND HAYEK & GAY MARRIAGE
I don't know if folks saw these two pieces by Virginia Postrel on Sunday. The first is a long Boston Globe"ideas" piece on Hayek that is very well done. There's a companion piece on Hayek and gay marriage here. I post these not just because they are of possible interest but also because I'm quoted in the gay marriage piece and in an odd sort of way. During a debate over at The Corner on National Review Online, where several folks were saying Hayek would oppose same-sex marriages, I sent an email to Jonah Goldberg arguing the contrary. I hedged my phrasing to the right a bit, trying to make sure it got mentioned, which it did. Well Virginia saw it there and then used it in her piece, so now my hastily constructed and very hedged email language has appeared in a major daily newspaper! The world of the Internet continues to be a wild and wacky place.
