Happy birthday to America’s greatest living intellectual! If only he were 50!
Happy Birthday to a very smart man!
I dunno when that pic was taken, but he looks better at 80 than I do at 55!....................
Happy Birthday Dr. Sowell! May you have many more!
“If he were only 50!”
Well, he’s only 80 and he has alot of work to do.
Happy Birthday Mr. Sowell.
Happy Birthday Dr. Sowell!
You ARE our NATIONAL TREASURE—hidden to too many or what I call Black and female conservatives, Today’s Invisible Men!
Happy Birthday to a great guy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My Mt Rushmore of Great Conservative writers of the 20th Century would be Milton Friedman, William F Buckley, Walter Williams and the man.....Thomas Sowell!!!
A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you and your loved ones Dr. Sowell !
That picture has been on his books for quite a while. I’d guess it was taken in his early 70s.
I see him on CSPAN. He still looks really young for 80.
And he is still one of my heroes. Happy Birthday Dr. Sowell!
Happy Birthday to one of the Republic’s greatest contemporary treasures!
Many, many more, Mr. Sowell.
You are one of the greatest thinkers and writers of a century, and a man of character and endurance. Thank you— don’t stop! — and many happy returns!
80?! That’s hard to believe! My favorite book by him is “Knowledge and Decisions.”
And he still looks younger than me!.............
Happy B-Day Sowell Man!
Happy Birthday to one of America’s greatest minds!
Happy B’day Dr. Sowell! I’m sure you are either posting or lurking here. I doubt it is possible that you are the most brilliant thinker of our time without spending some time at FR!!!!!
Ping and Happy Birthday to Dr. Sowell!
Happy birthday Dr. Sowell!
Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday Mr. Sowell and God willing, many many more to come!
Happy Birthday, Dr. Sowell!
Happy Birthday, Dr. Sowell,
God bless you for the work you do. Lord willing He will bless us with many more years of your clear speaking, to the point essays. Your writings are a breath of fresh air and are as necessary as sunshine and rain.
An exceptional scholar and visionary of conservatism. He shares the same birthday as my daughter....happy birthday to Rachel and Thomas :)
One of the best!!!
I hope he's mentoring a host of conservative black intellectuals who can begin in ernest to pull the black community away from the marxists. I read recently that 52% of black 5th graders are functionally illiterate. That's a crime - pretty much genocide. And we can thank all those compassionate marxist state reps, union teachers and school officials for allowing this.
I have learned more from this man than I learned throughout any other economics/philosophy education,
without ever being in his classroom.
Let’s share some of Dr. Sowell’s classic comments.
One of my favorites was that he was glad he got into Harvard BEFORE there was affirmative action!
Dr. Sowell is a *true* national treasure.
WOW! Happy birthday Thomas Sowell!
Here's wishing him many more!
Happy Birthday to Dr. Sowell. My favorite book by him is, A Conflict of Visions. The intelligence that comes from every sentence just bowls you over.
May you continue to enjoy your hobby of photography but please keep writing and sharing your brilliant mind.
I hope I’m still as coherent at 80.
Some of his more recent ones. :-)
