We had a special guest, Edward Hudgins, an Adjunct Scholar at the Cato Institute, and Senior Fellow and Washington director at The Objectivist Center. Ed is a charming, highly knowledgeable man, and always has his own slant on things. He has a PhD in Political Philosophy, but underplays his scholarly background, and is always thinking about ways to communicate with the American people at large.
In this respect, he reminds me a bit of Tom Wolfe, the best selling novelist, who has a doctorate in American Studies from Yale, but hardly ever mentions it.
It's possible you have seen Ed as a talking head on TV. Here is a brief bio with some links to some of his articles:
Rhyme of the day:
You'll be worse than ill
If you indoor-grill,
Unless your ventilation
Is a hurricane sensation.
