WHAT'S HAPPENED SINCE I LAST POSTED HERE: My most recent article for the Reason site is about the real trouble with ACORN, the infamous activist association that is closing its doors as a national organization this week. (My take: Contrary to the standard conservative narrative, the group wasn't Alinskyan enough.) I also did a column about the attempts to corral "lone wolf" violence for various political narratives. Meanwhile, the new print edition of Reason includes my review of Rebecca Solnit's A Paradise Built in Hell. Look for it at a newsstand near you.
