Ed Brayton

DarkSyde interviews Ed Brayton. Ed writes at Dispatches from the Culture Wars (which used to live here).

A staunch libertarian liberal, Ed's take on issues doesn't always line up neatly with the political divide as it usually plays out, which makes him an interesting read. That, and his work defending science classrooms against unscientific claptrap.

The interview doesn't focus so much on science as on the ways that convention prevents people from seeing natural allies across political boundaries. Check it out.
