The Wisdom of Thomas Sowell

I have referenced Thomas Sowell in previous posts. He is one of many great writers and thinkers of our time who happen to be black. He is largely ignored by mainstream media, but that's not surprising because he doesn't fit the mold of what an African-American leader is supposed to sound like. In other words, he's not Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, or Louis Farrakhan.

Here are a few quotes from one of his latest columns entitled "Random Thoughts":

People who think that they don't owe anything to anybody should read David McCullough's outstanding new book "1776," to see what hell other people went through to create the freedom that we enjoy and abuse today.

Senator Dianne Feinstein asked Judge John Roberts whether his being Catholic would interfere with carrying out his duties on the Supreme Court but she would undoubtedly have felt insulted if anyone had asked her whether being Jewish would interfere with her carrying out her duties as a Senator.

I usually read the Wall Street Journal before breakfast. I can't take the New York Times on an empty stomach.
Read the rest of Sowell's column Here .

If this guy was just a little bit liberal... he would be a legend. I have 3 or 4 of his books from the pre-internet days. I can think of no one who better communicates through the written word.
