Thomas Frank Returns to Baffle Some More

What's the Matter with Kansas author Thomas Frank is putting out a new edition of his fabled magazine The Baffler. The Chicago-based publication was an infrequently published liberal critique of new-economy thinking over the past decade, but it's been several years since an issue appeared. Now, the New York Observer reports, the magazine will be produced on a twice-yearly schedule.

People who are wondering what Frank has on his mind these days can either pick up the latest edition of The Baffler or can meet him at his appearance at The Commonwealth Club on May 8 in Silicon Valley. (Watch The Club's web site for details.)

Frank, a weekly columnist for the Wall Street Journal, is the author most recently of The Wrecking Crew.
