Most of the time I agree with Dr. Sowell. This time I vehemently disagree. Our congressmonkeys are already overpaid. Federal judges, ditto. If they are so underpaid, how do so many become rich on the public dime? I think a greater problem is the "politicians for life" we seem to have. Has Bawney Fwank ever not been a politician? Let's just get going with term limits, get rid of all the riff raff.
