"And Underneath?"

Brad DeLong was on the "Stanford liberal-libertarian panel" today.  Unfogged has the scoop:

...DeLong prepared for the talk by taking off his shirt and tie.

And underneath? Grizzled mat of chest hair, or shaved and waxed?

Sheesh you'd never make it as a murder witness.

Did he have an undershirt on?

Underneath ... another shirt (not an undershirt, a cafepress shirt about jedi masters and obama)! He also snarked a few times in a way that would probably have infuriated me were I not sympathetic.

There wasn't a whole lot of engagement, I thought. Wilkinson made some comments about the overwhelmingly liberal media and claimed that the Heritage Foundation and Cato were poor Davids pitifully and mostly ineffectively attempting to influence policy against their might. Postrel wanted us all to know that she's written a book which is, surprisingly, not called Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Mankind. Brink Wossname was the best of the libertarian crew and J. Cohen the most vociferous of the liberals.

So the goal was to understand if liberals and libertarians should be allies? No. Simple answers....
