Happy Birthday Nat Hentoff

Happy Birthday to my friend and Cato senior fellow Nat Hentoff. He’s 86, but he continues to crank out columns and books on everything from censorship, torture, and the Fourth Amendment’s ban on unreasonable searches, to his passionate love of jazz. 

He sat down for a taped interview last month where he offered his views on current threats to free speech and his personal encounters with John Yoo and, way back in the 1950s, with Che Guevara.

Check out his books here.
