    OWS == SDS

    In my dream cabinet, Thomas Sowell would be Secretary of Education.

    I’d give my right arm to see a debate between Thomas Sowell and Obama. It would be an intellectual smackdown, WWE style!

    In my Dream Cabinet, the position of Secretary of Education would not exist because the Department would not exist.

    I would, however, have Sowell on my NGO speed-dial.

    I had heard he had passed away, I’m pleased to find it (must have been) a miscommunication.
