I must gleefully report that I am one of the winners of the 2005 Thomas S. Szasz Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Cause of Civil Liberties, largely for my article “The Economics of Szasz: Preferences, Constraints, and Mental Illness.” The other prize-winner is individualist feminist Joan Kennedy Taylor.

There will be an award ceremony at the Cato Institute on September 21, 6:00-7:30 P.M. The event is open to the public, and a lot of my friends will be coming – probably including some of your favorite bloggers. If you live in the D.C. area, it would be great chance to meet in person.

Hope to see you there!
