Freakanomics on Charles Koch

A lot of people attack "the Koch Brothers"; many of them are fundamentalists in the usual sense of the term. One easy way to tell a fundy here: they haven't read anything or heard them speak at any length. The easiest way: When the Kochs are labeled "right-wing". (Hint: they're Libertarians.) "The Kochs" can also give you a quick read on someone's approach to politics. If a person calls them "right wing", then you're probably dealing with someone who's a rube or a demagogue on this topic.

A bunch of cool stuff in this Freakanomics interview with Charles-- on life, business and politics. My favorite factoid: the Kochs' activism started with their profound disappointment with Bush II, including the Harriet Myers cronyistic appointment attempt.
