Wow. Wandering into the world of the Internet can present us with amusing ironies. At 3:13am my time I decided to peruse the world of Google and followed my own name to Stars over Washington and from there back to my own blog. The Google Ad there featured was for, of all things, Americans for Limited Government or as I have come to think of the, Allied for Looting the Globe. Directly below that was the title of my latest article and the image of two lumpish supports of both ALG and Cato Institute, John Fund and his first employer in his long career as a political operative, Edward H. Crane,III. The article mentioned each of these Old Timer Libertarian-types, though neither is actually a Libertarian if you examine their actions as opposed to the rhetoric that oozes from their facial orifice.
The article just begins to approach the linkages of action and interest that for each man form the basis of a lucrative career. The graphic will eventually be up on my cafepress site. I like the one of John Fund's briefing in front of the White House.
I met Crane at the 1977 LP of California Convention. He looks just like my older brother, a circumstance I was chagrined to realize is the outcropping of our being cousins. Crane is evidently descended from a maternal Reasoner, my mother's maiden name. I guess we have no control of who our relations might be.
It's a Small World and growing smaller all the time.
