A Thoughtful Comment that Cato Employees Should Consider

Apparently Cato President Ed Crane has drawn up a petition that he wants Cato employees to sign. Lew Rockwell reports on what he has heard about the petition and offers some considered thought that might help Cato employees in dealing with "Angry Ed":
Cato prez Ed Crain, famous for his ability to browbeat, is demanding that every Cato employee, from the janitor to David Boaz, sign a petition threatening to walk out if the Kochs win their suit. A number of staffers left early yesterday rather than be confronted by angry Ed in their offices. Some people at Cato agree with Ed, of course, many more are neutral, and a good number are rooting for his ouster. And almost no one wants to sign this petition. No one should, especially under duress.


  1. Ed Crane reminds me of the union boss in "On the Waterfront."

  2. Looks like it's time to choose sides. From what I've read, it's a bit like choosing between your typical Republican politician and your typical Democrat politician. The results are the same either way.
