I rank Dr. Sowell right up there with Mark Steyn.

Yes, he's that good.

I became acquainted with Steyn way back when he was the movie reviewer and media critic for the old American Spectator, but he really shot up in my esteem around 1997 or '98, with an article in the WSJ titled "In defense of Tabloid Sleaze."

Naturally, it was about Little Big Fraud™ and his "can't keep it in his pants" scandals of the time.

Milton Friedman calls Professor Sowell a genius and I think he is right.

Sowell is a true intellectual, not a pandering rabble rouser; he writes from the truth, not towards coercive persuasion; he knows better than the reader that his words are meant for history, not revolution.

Hmmm, that's being very generous to Steyn.
