Hold The Date

Joe Knippenberg posts this over at No Left Turns:

The day after Super Tuesday (or is that Stupor Tuesday?)–Wednesday, February 6th, for those who aren’t paying attention–Jonah Goldberg will be keynoting a conference at Oglethorpe. He’ll be talking about his new book. I’m looking for professor and blogger types to fill out a couple of roundtables, one on the future of liberalism and conservatism in America, the other on the nomination marathon/sprint. Contact me by email (jknippenberg@oglethorpe.edu) if you’re interested. I could come up with airfare and accommodations for some of you, but can promise nothing more than conversation and conviviality.

Meanwhile, I hope Atlanta-area NRO readers will also try to attend since it’s always good to see you folks, and it’d be even better to see you folks buying my book (which I will be glad to sign or otherwise distinguish — I could bite it, for example).  

Jonah Goldberg — Jonah Goldberg is a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a senior editor of National Review. His new book, The Suicide of The West, will be released on April 24.

How the Constitution Limits State Taxes

Must a company have a physical presence in a state for that state to require it to collect taxes? The Supreme Court is considering that question, which has grown more important as online sales have taken off. The Competitive Enterprise Institute has submitted an excellent brief arguing that the answer is yes, at ... Read More
