We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Carla’s covered

Carla Howell seems to have made a major breakthrough. She will be in the Massachusetts Governor’s Debate. It’s going to be awfully hard to ignore her after this (from her press release):

“Carla Howell is in the October 1 Governor’s Debate. ABC, CBS, NBC, and New England Cable News TV. The Boston Globe. The Boston Herald. The Worcester Telegram & Gazette. It will be simulcast on the internet. Moderated by CNN’s Judy Woodruff. Shannon O’Brien, the Democratic nominee for Governor, and Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for Governor, will both debate Carla Howell face-to-face.”

After she’s done with Boston Tea Party II, could we talk her into throwing one over here too?

  • And the cool thing is, that debate is going to be at my alma mater…

    Odd that there’s nothing on her Web site (as of 9:15AM EDST in the US) about this breakthrough…perhaps I’ve missed it?

    PLEASE NOTE! The media consortium that is sponsoring the event has effectively rescinded the invitation, and Massachusetts Libertarians are NOT happy about it.

    Slight correction: I’m told that the media consortium is waffling at this point. They won’t give us a straight answer. Your help is still needed to contact the members of the media consortium and help them decide!

  • Libertarian inclusion into debates in other states hasn’t done much for the cause. Do not think of this as the silver bullet or you will be sorely disappointed.
