OKAY, DELAWARE. I'M SORRY. I said yesterday that Delaware's Free State Project report made me laugh. It did. But gotta clarify. What makes me laugh is that Delaware has so little support from its local libertarians that its state report had to be written by somebody who'd only driven through. I wasn't, however, laughing at that somebody -- Gary Snyder -- or his writing. As you see when you read the report, Gary's objective was to ... well, be objective. Opening with his lack of connection to the state laid the groundwork for his position. He presented the advantages of Delaware without the bias of a rah-rah resident, without subjectivity or sentimentality. And in that, he done good. It was a tough job, but somebody had to do it.
