The Cato Institute Has Surprisingly Little To Do With Basketball

College hoops? Not so much. However, "For The First Time Ever, Libertarians Win Something" is a gem of a headline.
You could tell by all those three-pointers that this was a team organized on the wisdom of distributed decision-making rather than central control.
Quite. This, in a nutshell, is why I like Reason: principled libertarian commentary together with wry references to their foundation members' "Vulcan and human halves".

Tragically, despite the name, Kelvin Cato of the Pistons did not attend "libertarian mecca" GMU - instead, he chose Iowa State and their iniquitous corn subsidies. Another marketing opportunity gone for naught.
