…Thomas Sowell. At 86 years of age, he is retiring but I’m hoping like hell that he keeps writing. He’s a man of significant national stature, but never achieved the visibility he deserved because (in my opinion) he’s a conservative African-American. That simply will not do. Fake News Networks like MSNBC or CNN or ABC often have a token conservative or faux-conservative pundit on their programming, but we absolutely cannot have a brilliant African-American conservative on air because by God, the rest of them might start thinking that way too.
I’ll get off the soap box.
His final column is here.
He’s also a great photographer. Very Frank Lloyd Wright-esque.
Farewell, Dr. Sowell. May your retirement be long, happy and healthy. You’ve more than earned it.
