Some Girls Have All the Luck

How does Cathy Young make a living writing crap like this? What I most dislike about Reason is not so much that they take non-libertarian positions on occasion (what’s up with hiring Jonathan Rauch?), but the general uselessness of many of the articles. In this one, Young spends the first five paragraphs summarizing what others have written about the Spanish election, then the last three flirting just a bit with a libertarian position (how they vote is their own business) before resuming her normal prostration before the Bushies. And this ran first in the Boston Globe then in Reason, for which I assume she was paid twice. Is this the “American Dream” I’ve always heard about?
