Dear NY Times: re-reporting other journalists' work as your own, without citation, isn't much better than plagiarism.
With Ron Paul’s now-infamous newsletters once again making headlines, I mulled whether I ought to revisit the issue, but ultimately decided that there wasn’t much to add to the long piece Dave Weigel and I wrote for Reason back in 2008, especially since I’d already elaborated in a couple blog postscripts written shortly after that article appeared.

"[I]t was to head off a return of the old demons (unemployment, Fascism, German militarism, war, revolution) that western Europe took the new path with which we are now familiar. Post-national, welfare-state, cooperative, pacific Europe was not born of the optimistic, ambitious, forward-looking project imagined in fond retrospect by today’s Euro-idealists. It was the insecure child of anxiety. Shadowed by history, its leaders implemented social r...

Anthropologists now reveal that chimpanzees mediate conflicts between other group members, not for their own direct benefit, but rather to preserve the peace within the group.

For sports fans, the Super Bowl is the culmination of all that is good and holy about football and the American way. But for people who hate America, there are always the commercials. So which advertisement emerged as this year's creepiest? Was it GoDaddy's never-ending crusade to corner the highly lucrative misogynist idiot market? Or GM's scurrilous suggestion that a Ford won't survive the Mayan apocalypse? Alas, no! The winner is former congr...

Best. Museum. Ever. Nirvana for any computer geek who wants to play around with very rare computers and just as much fun for the casual computer user who simply wants to relive the days of playing Oregon Trail on an Apple II. Great staff, too. Don't be discouraged by location away from downtown Seattle.
