Welcome RedMaryland “The Broadside” Listeners

Hosts Mark Newgent and Andrew Langer of RedMaryland had me on their BlogTalkRadio show this evening to talk about the Chick-Fil-A furor and its lessons both for political freedom and for economic freedom, and also our efforts to rally opinion in favor of the new marriage law. (I mentioned this site.) You can listen here or here (UStream). The Glenn Greenwald column we discussed is here.

P.S. While I praised the stand taken by the ACLU’s Illinois affiliate, I see here that the ACLU’s Massachusetts affiliate has taken a much more troubling stand, electing to gloss over the ample evidence that Mayor Menino was threatening regulatory action hostile to the restaurant chain. Hans Bader of CEI has more on the First Amendment analysis. And the owner of Chicago’s only Chick-Fil-A doesn’t seem to fit the stereotype (“we donate to a wide variety of causes, including … gay and lesbian organizations.”)
