Congress Strong-Arming Baseball? That's Foul, by Nick Gillespie, Matt Welch, The Washington Post, 20 Jan 2008
Discusses the latest congressional hearings on steroids
"First, Major League Baseball, along with other sports leagues and private-sector ventures, simply should not be required to submit their business plans -- much less blood and urine samples -- to Congress or any other government body. (The flip-side of this, of course, is that MLB and other sports leagues should not be allowed to extract extortionate contracts for stadiums and services from all-too-pliant state and local governments.)"

Rock and Roll Entrepreneur: Frank Zappa's true legacy., Reason, Apr 2005
"In 1990 Vaclav Havel feted him in the newly liberated Czechoslovakia as a hero of freedom ... he was from the beginning a sharp businessman who knew that ... running his own record labels and retaining control of his copyrights ... was central to his aesthetic and economic independence."

South Park Libertarians: Trey Parker and Matt Stone on liberals, conservatives, censorship, and religion., by Nick Gillespie, Jesse Walker, Reason, Dec 2006
Transcript of conversation with Trey Parker and Matt Stone, at Reason's Aug 2006 conference in Amsterdam
"... South Park, now finishing its first decade at Comedy Central, follows the misadventures of four grade-school boys in the mythical town of South Park, Colorado, a Brigadoon of small-town depravity, degradation, and good old American values. I suspect that South Park will prove every bit as long-lived in the American subconscious as Mark Twain's Hannibal, Missouri, or Laura Ingalls Wilder's prairie."

Tibor Machan, a Founding Editor of Reason, RIP: Refugee from communism, academic philosopher, Objectivist, popular columnist brought precision and clarity to Reason's early years, 25 Mar 2016
Memorial tribute, describing Machan's involvement with Reason through the years
"Tibor's impact and influence on the growth and development of Reason can't be overstated. Especially in those early years, he brought not just a rigorous philosophical mind-set to our pages but, as a refugee from communist Hungary, a personal fire for individual liberty and a free society that energized all our efforts. Tibor was also a longtime columnist and consultant to Freedom Communications and the author and editor of dozens of books ..."
Stand-Up Guy: Comedian Drew Carey on network censors, Hollywood guilt, and why he likes eating at Bob's Big Boy, by Steve Kurtz, Nick Gillespie, Reason, Nov 1997
Topics range from Hollywood reactions to Carey's humor, his attitude toward government, the ABC network censor, Las Vegas, drug legalization and more
"Comedian Drew Carey has become a full-fledged media sensation ... Carey's appeal stems in large part from his Everyman status. ... In his sitcom, ... [he] is the consummate working stiff, besieged on all sides by an indifferent employer, hostile co-workers, aimless friends, and a strong sense of his own inadequacy and lack of success. From this potentially grim reality, Carey squeezes immense humor (and precious little sentimentality)."
