FIRM Articles And Editorials

Posted Sep 24 2009 10:19pm
Now that the health care issue is front-and-center on the political radar, our web designer Tod has added four new pages to the FIRM website which include a compilation (with links) of all of the health care OpEds and articles written by myself, Ari Armstrong, Brian Schwartz, Lin Zinser, etc.

So please feel free to steer people towards the list of "All Articles/Editorials", to the subpages for Ari, Brian, and myself, or to any individual pieces.

All Articles/OpEds: http://www.westandfirm.org/ articles.html

Ari Armstrong: http://www.westandfirm.org/ armstrong.html
Paul Hsieh: http://www.westandfirm.org/ hsieh.html
Brian Schwartz: http://www.westandfirm.org/ schwartz.html

The " All Articles" page lists the 44 OpEds and 3 health care articles published between January 1, 2007 (when Lin started FIRM) and September 23, 2009, listed in order of most recent to oldest. We have also included the revised 2007 version of Dr. Peikoff's "Health Care is Not A Right" as the top-most item in the Articles section. As we add more articles and OpEds, Dr. Peikoff's piece will always remain on top.

So to my fellow FIRM writers -- thank you for all your help and support!
