Happy Birthday Cei

Last night I attended the 20th Anniversary dinner of my former employer, the Competitive Enterprise Institute. The festivities included a speech by Treasury Secretary John Snow who celebrated tax cuts and deregulation, a tribute to Norman Borlaug, who won the Nobel Peace Prize for fathering the “green revolution” and continues to champion the promise of technology in solving global environmental problems, remarks by CEI’s President, the irrepressible Fred L. Smith, Jr., and the traditional after-party featuring cordials and complemeentary cigars. I am glad there are outfits inside-the-beltway that know how to party. Happy Birthday CEI!
