What Happens When You Spend the Weekend with 1,500 Anti-Government College Students?

What happens is you meet people like Michael Malice, who I mentioned briefly in my piece on the homepage today. Malice was born in the Soviet Union, just got back from a five-day trip to North Korea (he says going there is like time-travelling to another planet), and is co-authoring singer and reality-TV star Bret Michaels’ autobiography. And in the Ayn Rand/William F. Buckley, Jr. tiff, he comes down squarely on the side of Rand — Malice tells me that one of his most prized possessions is a copy of Atlas Shrugged that he got NR’s founder to sign. Needless to say, it was an interesting weekend.
