A fascinating first-person account of the health care reform battles

Regardless of where you stand on the law, economics, or politics of the Affordable Care Act, I highly recommend Ilya Shapiro's new paper "A Long, Strange Trip: My First Year Challenging the Constitutionality of Obamacare" (forthcoming in Florida International Law Review), in which the CATO scholar details his year of writing, speaking, and debating various legal issues involving the health care reform legislation.
For those of us in academia, the paper provides a wonderful view into the world of think tanks and advocacy--and may even spur some thoughts on the meaning and purpose of the academic life, as it certainly did for me.
