“Positively Cato”

A Cato-er e-mails:

“I read your post and followups on stem cell research, abortions, and libertarianism with some interest — especially the part about the Times today being ‘positively Cato.’ Just so you know, and as Ramesh suggested, Cato has consciously NOT taken a position on either of those issues precisely because where one stands on them cannot be informed by libertarian principles. (Interestingly, Heritage has not taken a position on abortion either.)

In short, I assure you that plenty of folks at Cato…count themselves as being on the pro-life team.”
