Off topic: The New York Times has published my LTE on former University of Chicago law professor Cass Sunstein, a leading advocate of so-called "libertarian paternalism".

My LTE (2nd one down) was in response to a May 16, 2010 article in the NYT Sunday Magazine section, "Cass Sunstein Wants to Nudge Us", praising Sunstein's work as President Obama's director of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) to promote behaviours the government deems desirable.

It will also appear tomorrow in the May 30, 2010 print edition, in the Sunday Magazine section (as opposed to the regular letters section.)
