...you dream of Jeff Tucker and have Mises Institute books in your dreams as product placement.
Honest to God, I had a dream last night where I was in Wal Mart and for some reason, Jeff Tucker was there, sitting in a little Red Rider wagon in a store aisle, wearing his trademark khaki pants, shirt, blue jacket, and little bow tie, reading the Mises Institute's new edition of Rothbard's For a New Liberty. We exchange some words and he wants me to pick up books for him at Wal Mart that I think he'd be interested in.
Obviously not too many Wal Mart stores carry Austrian economic texts, so for some reason, I went to look in the toy department and they had some Nacy Drew type of book (I just know it was a kinda girly kind of book), and I put in some sort of walkie talkie sort of thing in the bag, and some other really bizzare toys.I bring these back to Jeff and said "Well, it's not like you're going to find Rothbard's Logic of Action at Wal Mart." He says these are going to be terrific and thanks me.
The dream goes off in a weird tangent after that, but yeah, Jeff Tucker is in my dreams, as is product placement for Mises Instiute books.
I suspect this is my mind's way of saying I should get on the ball in writing that live blog of For a New Liberty. The good folks at the Mises Institute were kind enough to send me a review copy and they've been stiffed out a review thus far. Well, I think I better get around to it today, before I'm like MacBeth and start seeing the book before me.
