Yesterday I noted [1] the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Institute for Justice.  Today comes further evidence [2] – which thrills me to my marrow – for why this great institution deserves our applause and support:

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals today issued a unanimous opinion granting victory to cancer patients and their supporters from across the nation in a landmark constitutional challenge brought against the U.S. Attorney General. The lawsuit, filed by the Institute for Justice on behalf of cancer patients, their families, an internationally renowned marrow-transplant surgeon, and a California nonprofit group, seeks to allow individuals to create a pilot program that would encourage more bone-marrow donations by offering modest compensation—such as a scholarship or housing allowance—to donors. The program had been blocked by a federal law, the National Organ Transplant Act (NOTA), which makes compensating donors of these renewable cells a major felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

I’ve yet to read Alex Tabarrok’s new e-book [3], but I join Bryan Caplan in cheering its publication [4]!

George Will explains some unintended consequences of racial preferences [5].

Carpe Diem’s Mark Perry offers good sense in response to some truly twisted commentary on Wal-Mart opening stores in DC [6].

The indomitable George Selgin discusses NGDP targeting [7].

Bob Higgs explains the sorry reality that government is rapidly expropriating private wealth [8].  (This activity, alas, is one for which government enjoys a decided comparative advantage.)

In today’s Richmond Times-Dispatch I discuss another talent for which government enjoys a comparative advantage: arrogance [9].

Nick Schulz identifies three inconvenient truths for OWSers [10].

And Jonah Goldberg hits a home run [11].
