Where the former and current soldiers of the free market revolution meet to discuss everything from global warming snowglobes to politically incorrect mousepads

Those of you who saw Fred on Friday on Crossfire may have noticed his pedagogical use of the uninhibited consumption of Oreos (Fred's count: 3. Official in house, on screen count: 5, and there's no way that oatmeal cookie made it out of the studios avena intacta. The only question for Fred is: can he pull this stunt again? (Heads up to the press side at CEI: don't be surprised if Fred announces that all public appearances are to exclusively be on the fat tax and demands that there be Oreos on set.)

Next year's stunt for the Annual Dinner: Oreos on the podium during Fred's speech. Naturally, there will be a book on the number he consumes during his speech.

Bill Dunn’s yacht, The Tempest, is racing from the blue-blood boating haven of Newport to Hamburg as part of the DaimlerChrysler North Atlantic Challenge. The Grand Prize is a reception in winning crew’s honor hosted by the Mayor of Hamburg and this trophy. Must be a yachting thing. Other prizes include silver chalices, crystal decanters, and a fancy globe. I guess cash and kiss from Miss Germany were judged too common.
Fred will be on Crossfire this afternoon at 4:30p debating obesity, public health, and New York's proposed "fat taxes." No word yet on who the Other Side will be.

And if that isn't enough to satisfy your Fredophilic urges, continue on to the video file of the May 30th episode of Now with Bill Moyers, where free market environmentalism gets a respectful hearing from even such an unlikely source. Those having trouble with the streaming can also read the transcript, though you'll have to scroll through the first segment, a self-righteous hit-piece on Deputy Interior Secretary Steve Griles.

I had a moment of longing for Adler today (no, not that way! His hair scares me). I was thumbing through our clip file to pick out some choice samples for our board meeting on Wednesday.

Sloppy clips! Crooked and messy. I don't have to tell you that I didn't make these clips. I am too well trained. These were made by our (former) administrative assistant. She could have used a dose of Adler's anal-retentive clip making training.
