Nat Hentoff Joins Cato Institute

Nat Hentoff, who was recently laid off from The Village Voice after working there as a columnist for fifty years, has been made a senior fellow at the Cato Institute. From their announcement:

I spoke with him on the phone a few days ago and said I was looking forward to working with him — to which he replied “we’ve already been working together for years on civil liberties issues.”  True that.  He said Cato was a natural fit for him because we both take principled positions in defense of the Constitution and liberty.

Nat Hentoff has authored many books and hundreds of articles, but here’s a quick sampling of his writings:  Criticizing President Bush’s attack on habeas corpus; defending Bush’s judicial nominee, Janice Rogers Brown; defending free speech on campus; criticizing the Clinton administration’s handling of the Elian Gonzales matter.
