Well put. Good article as is typical for Dr. Sowell, but I fear he is just preaching to the choir. For every Tom Sowell, there is a Leonard Pitts Jr. doing the grievance mongering who gets a bigger and more sympathetic audience.
I think these girls' misplaced ire about Carl's Jr. ads is a misplaced target for this column. I never even knew about them before this instant, and I'll forget about them as soon as I get on with my day. And it seems like Doug is promoting tacky, sleazy advertising in the process, which is clearly not a Christian ideal.

Why Did We Celebrate Labor Day?

Very true - same here. Truth is, very few holidays are actually celebrated; I can think of five off the top of my head. The rest are just welcome days off.
Truth be told, though, they *will* vote. And they are subject to whimsical reasons as motivation to vote. Getting some truth out there in unusual places could not hurt.
Thanks for the info. I was unaware of the details. I hope the facts get out in all these examples.
It takes a special brand of stupid to make an assertion like that. He's every bit as literate as the guy with the shirt, too.
That's just doubling down on stupid, as someone learned in something is trying to explain what he clearly doesn't know. Somebody needs to start a #WellForMe hashtag. Much like the earplugs/rubber bullets thing.

The Mockery of 'Black Jesus'

I understand what Brent does, and why he does it, but I question the value of columns like these. I had no idea this was even a show, and I know no one who would watch it. So now I know it is, and I'm appalled by it. A fan of said show may watch, and will not be swayed as a consequence of reading this. Crass people will create and seek crass entertainment; that really cannot be stopped. BTW, I don't think even Robot Chicken has any redeeming value.

Is Thinking Obsolete?

I would say the ~ 3,000 folks killed in the World Trade Center were almost exclusively civilians - targeted as such, I would add. Even then, there were apologists for terror.

Oh Mama! Jesse the Baby Ventura

I think Jesse defamed himself plenty with this hysterical movie: "Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101264/?ref_=nv_sr_1 There's a rifftrax version on hulu that makes it even more ridiculous.
