We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Yes it is always worthwhile listening to Sowell. He not only is able to think deeply and express himself clearly, he can do so in a manner that even a layman like myself (no college degree) is able to understand. His books that I've read provide road maps to understanding the reasons for much of what is wrong with our country today.
