Reason’s 50th Anniversary Gala



Reason magazine is holding a 50th-anniversary gala on November 3, 2018 in Los Angeles at the L.A. Live Ritz Carlton.

Yes, you to can attend, if you have managed to grab a serious amount of Fed printed money.

signup page:


This is interesting though from the gala's front page:
In 1968, the Vietnam War was raging, with no end in sight for it or for the military draft. The assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy sparked riots in Detroit, New York, Washington, and over 100 other cities. The Chicago police busted heads at the Democratic National Convention, Soviet tanks crushed the Prague Spring, and Olympic athletes raised their fists from the medal platform.
In the midst of such turbulence, a Boston University student named Lanny Friedlander (1947–2011) launched Reason magazine. His new publication featured a clean and striking graphic design and, even more important, a clean and striking ethos. Friedlander’s editor’s note in the first issue of Reason proclaimed:
When REASON speaks of poverty, racism, the draft, the war, student power, politics, and other vital issues, it shall be reasons, not slogans, it gives for conclusions… Proof, not belligerent assertion. Logic, not legends. Coherence, not contradictions. This is our promise: This is the reason for REASON.
