Yesterday, we reported that Ann Coulter threatened to track down and “drown” people who were considering to vote libertarian in upcoming elections. Her comments have created a great deal of controversy, and Reason writer Ronald Bailey hit back today, daring Coulter to come find him, even posting his address and directions to where he could be found.
He posted Google Maps directions, presumably to his home, in a recent column about her threats towards libertarians.
Bailey said in his post that, “In Virginia, I am voting for the Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate, Robert Sarvis, this November. So O.K., Ms. Coulter, come give drowning me a try. My home address in Charlottesville is marked on the map. Google Map directions to my house from your digs in Palm Beach are below. See you soon.”
Ronald Bailey is the award-winning science correspondent for Reason magazine and Reason.com, where he writes a weekly science and technology column.
Bailey is the author of the book Liberation Biology: The Moral and Scientific Case for the Biotech Revolution (Prometheus, 2005), and his work was featured in The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2004.
In 2006, Bailey was shortlisted by the editors of Nature Biotechnology as one of the personalities who have made the “most significant contributions” to biotechnology in the last 10 years.
