Your silly comments seem to presume that there is no right or wrong, just a need to compromise, to be bi-partisan (your highest virture). My view is that Thomas Sowell transcends politics and talks about truth. Politics is an inevitable factor in his columns only because that's the process we rely on to gain rational public policy. And it fails miserably to deliver what we need. Your process would fail just as miserably because it is mindless. Try to reason your way to good policy over bad instead of simply seeking a "do something!" approach that demands we "work together," etc. The idea that we need to do something even if it would make things worse is the greater evil, in my opinion. Don't you believe there is a right answer, DHE?
Random thoughts on the passing scene:

When I was growing up, an older member of the family used to say, "What you don't know would make a big book." Now that I am an older member of the family, I would say to anyone, "What you don't know would fill more books than the Encyclopedia Britannica." At least half of our society's troubles come from know-it-alls, in a world where nobody knows even 10 percent of all.

Some people seem to think that, if life is not fair, then the answer is to turn more of the nation's resources over to politicians --...
