Click to view what is truly an excellent dialogue, and one worth sharing with all those who have ears.

If the guy wasn’t 814 years old [ed: first day, new ears], we should have to press gang him into the presidency.

And you can’t write that sort of title without offering a bit of contrast:

    Thomas Sowell is not 84. He was born in 1930. He will not be 84 until 2014.

    After 80, what does it really matter? 😀

    I mean, he is almost as old as Fred Thompson!

    I subscribed to newspapers just to read him.

    I found Victor Davis Hanson while trying to find Sowell’s op-eds when I was on deployment and couldn’t get the newspaper.

    I found political blogs trying to find more writing by VDH.

    I found this blog through Instapundit, who I found on the sidebar where VDH sometimes holds forth.

    Lo and behold, I found my old friend Smitty here.

    Thank you Thomas Sowell.

    I would heartily recommend his insightful (if needlessly inflammatorily titled) “Black Rednecks and White Liberals”. 

    Good times.
