Me & Mother Jones: Libertarian or Rapper?

Mother Jones has an article in their September/October issue challenging readers to guess whether one-line quotes (or antics) are from Rappers or from libertarians.

They used the first sentence of the last chapter of Lost Rights: “America needs fewer laws, not more prisons.”

When I wrote that book, I guessed that the above line would be the one most quoted from that chapter. Missed that one by a country mile…….

fyi – the first chapter of Lost Rights is available here.

    Around here, most of the people packing Glocks are undercover cops.

    You know, I’m seeing a whole different formatting for a Jim Bovard Audiobook here….think we could get Brian Wilson to apply his Dulcet Tones to the narration? 😀

    Sure as Hades – Brian could do a far better job than I could on that.
