One of the Clearest Thinking Humans in America...

Thomas Sowell has to be in the top ten. His current column "A Post-Racial President?" continues his record of clear thinking.

Who is Thomas Sowell? He crossed my radar only in the past 6 months or so. Here is his website.

He is an economist, a prolific writer, a professor at Stanford University, and an accomplished photographer. He is also a conservative American who happens to be Black. He is a man worthy of learning from.

Here are some of his accomplishments. This list does little to extol the character of the man. Reading some of his writings will.
