LA has had one of the coldest winters on record even though angelinos have been doing their part to generate as much greenhouse gas as possible. We drive more SUVs than ever and we have been burning a record amount of gasoline. It’s finally working. Today we expect a record setting temperature of 101 degrees. Our faith in Al Gore is restored!

Thomas Sowell

I love reading Thomas Sowell's writings ever since Marcel introduced me to them a few years ago. Here are some of his latest "Random Thoughts":

Most of the problems of this country are not nearly as bad as the "solutions" — especially the solutions that politicians come up with during election years.

Senator John McCain could never convince me to vote for him. Only Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama can cause me to vote for McCain.

One way to reduce illegal immigration might be to translate some of our far left publications into Spanish and give everyone in Mexico subscriptions. After they read how terrible this country is, many may want to stay away.

It is amazing to me that there are people who still take seriously claims by some candidates that they are against "special interests." All politicians are against their opponents' special interests and in favor of his own special interests.

Among the many wise things said by the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan was that you are entitled to your own opinion, but not to your own facts. Yet an incredible number of people make up whatever "facts" are needed to support whatever they choose to believe.
