A Quote and a Quip

Here's an excellent Random Thought from Dr. Thomas Sowell: "In trying to come up with alternatives to the welfare state, even some staunch conservatives have created plans that exempt low-income people from paying taxes, or plans that provide some basic income to all, making it unnecessary to work. But exempting anyone from responsibility and reciprocity as members of society risks disaster for those individuals and for society."

In his latest column, Argus Hamilton writes, "The Hollywood Reporter says that British white actor Joseph Fiennes will play Michael Jackson in a movie. He plays the older Jackson. In his remarkable life, Michael Jackson went from being a black superstar who could appeal to white audiences to a white superstar who appealed to black audiences."
