This is a fun idea! (Which I would totally do if I weren't bogged down with grad school work.)

Thomas Sowell--brilliant. Just when I think he's had the most amazing thoughts, I read something else and it's even more mind-blowing.

I don't know that I could even run the list. I can't think of a politician out there that I actually want to have govern our nation.

By the way, the word verification "word" is agnoglg, which I believe is some kind of remedy one has to take after ingesting month-old egg nog.
