Thomas Sowell Thinks

Random thoughts on the passing scene

Good stuff in here. Here's a sample:

Judges should ask themselves: Are we turning the law into a trap for honest people and a bonanza for charlatans?

I wish the majority of our judges were as well meaning as to think those thoughts. More and more, judges are charlatans.

Many disastrous mistakes, in both public and private life, are not due to people thinking stupidly but to their not bothering to think at all. If you don't stop and think, then it doesn't matter whether you are a genius or a moron.

Ain't that the truth.

Just before France surrendered to the invading Nazi armies in 1940, French Premier Paul Reynaud broadcast an appeal to America -- which was not in the war at that time -- to send planes and tanks to enable France to fight on. He didn't ask that we consult other countries or go to the League of Nations. He wanted unilateral American help.
