A New Piece in Slate


And a Modest Explanation for the Quiet Here

Things have been a bit quiet here at SBR lately, and I am grateful for those of you who still tune in. I have been publishing the occasional article over at Slate.

Here is a link to a piece Dahlia Lithwick and I just wrote on the DISCLOSE Act and its antagonists.

Two weeks ago, Randy Cohen and I published this article on the unfairness of granting elite passengers preferred access to TSA security checkpoints at airports, and proposed a public policy solution that might speed lines while reducing inequality.

It is a pleasure to write with these old friends, whom I have known since we were teammates and partners (with Randy, at Harvard) and rivals (of Dahlia, from Yale) on the parliamentary debate circuit late in the 20th century.
