Agitator pal, one-time guest-blogger, and two-time Agitator.com fantasy football points champion Baylen Linnekin has written a fascinating paper on the role colonial taverns played in shaping the First Amendment’s Assembly Clause. Also, look for a great article from Baylen on the regulation of food trucks in the April issue of Reason.

Regarding the toilet paper, I will go on record and state the I am in the proud minority that prefers the ‘under’.
My reason is pretty simple, though I’ve never seen it mentioned in arguments before – when toilet paper is hung underhand, you can pull the sheets away one handed with a hard yank straight down. This is pretty difficult if not impossible to do when the sheets are coming off over the top of the roll.
The quickest way to win the typical modern dullard’s respect is to throw some very large figure at him; in most cases he’ll simply accept it without even thinking about what it really means in terms of human experience.
When I see Amber Lyon cavorting around town in tight jeans and fuck-me boots seductively telling prospective clients she’s underage, I always
think “Isn’t that illegal?”
But of course only Amber has access to the secret code
of terms that actually denote underage trafficking. Fresh, pretty, cute–they’re all secret codes.
I think she’s been watching too many James Bond and/or Cold War films.
I can’t believe I went all the way through the prime of life and haven’t heard about “fuck-me boots” until now. Seems like a pretty cruel joke that I should find out about such important fashion statements after it’s too late to matter.
And the prairie dogs are talking about us in a language we can’t understand!
