Midnight Purple

Filed under: General — m759 @ 12:24 AM

From an obituary in tonight's online New York Times

Margalit Fox on Lanny Friedlander, founder of Reason  magazine, who died at 63 on March 19*—

"As Mr. Friedlander conceived it, Reason  was neither strictly right-wing libertarian nor strictly left— in modern parlance, neither red nor blue but a purple amalgam of the two. It was genuinely purple at first, as it was run off on a ditto machine."
