Random thoughts from Thomas Sowell

Thomas Sowell has a good column of random thoughts on NRO today.

A few good ones:

In politics, there are few skills more richly rewarded than the ability to misstate issues in a way that will sound plausible and attractive.

“A good catchword can obscure analysis for fifty years,” said Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. If so, then we may be hearing about “diversity,” “social justice” and “a living wage” for many years to come.

It’s worth going to read the whole thing.
