My Dad & LF


Since today is the 4 year anniversary of my Dad’s death, and since I’m often asked what the “Hop Bird” reference is in the book’s dedication, I thought I might post this.

I should also say that the book is dedicated to my Dad not just because he was my father, but because some much of this book is an extension of what he taught me and how he taught me to look at the world.

Oh and for those who throw dictionary definitions at me as if they settle the issues raised in my book definitively in favor of liberal conventional wisdom, here’s a piece my Dad wrote for the Wall Street Journal in 2002.
