Socialist Journalist Discovers Joys of Private Property

The news that left-wing blogger employee of Slate magazine Matthew Yglesias has purchased a $1.2-million townhouse in D.C.’s Logan Circle neighborhood has produced much chortling. Yglesias, after all, mocked property rights as the “myth of ownership.” Andy at AOSHQ says:
So, party at Matty’s this weekend? I mean, I’m sure he won’t mind if we crash the joint, what with that myth of owning private property and all.
Is socialist a little too strong?  I think not:
 As Winston Churchill noted:
“If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain.”
 Is he growing a brain?  That's yet to be seen.
