Imprimis: The History and Danger of Administrative Law

AT: YouTube blocks links to texts of Virginia anti-gun Bills

I am sharing this link because we seem to get a lot of NYT posts in the Forum. I would encourage people to be more skeptical of NYT as a source of reliable factual reporting and, for that reason, especially skeptical of it’s analytical reporting. NYT doesn’t really deserve the veneration it seems to enjoy.

For the oh-well-mistakes-are-made-and-usually-corrected crowd, I point to the last sentence.
